West Ham are now strong favourites to sign Bournemouth striker Josh King with Sky Bet pricing a move at 1/2.

The Hammers have been strongly linked with a move for the Norwegian since the summer with The Sun claiming Bournemouth value him at £15m during the January Transfer Window.

David Moyes does have money to spend, however, after Sebastien Haller completed his £22m move to Ajax on Friday. But with Michail Antonio the only recognised forward in his squad, the West Ham boss will need to act fast.

While reports suggest they are also weighing up a move for Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah, West Ham are currently the strong betting favourite to sign King during the January window, with a move to West Brom priced at 6/1. Aston Villa (10/1), Newcastle (12/1) and Everton (14/1) remain outside bets.

Former Hammer Marko Arnautovic meanwhile has been linked with a return to east London (9/2) with Olivier Giroud also a reported target for the club (5/1).
