David Moyes insists he has the full backing of the West Ham board to find a striker.

West Ham

are disappointed with the transfer window and have so far turned down offers to buy


Youssef En-Nesyri

, while the interest in

Boulaye Dia

of Reims and Montpellier’s

Gaetan Laborde

has not a positive result for them.


Joshua King

and Adam Armstrong of


 are other options as


tried to replace

Sebastian Haller

, who was sold to


for £20 million.

Owners David Sullivan and David Gold sanctioned some major expenses under Manuel Pellegrini, but Moyes wants more flexibility in spending this month.

“The board have backed me greatly since I have been here, anything I have really asked for,”

said Moyes.

“But I also know I am not someone who is going to go and ask for money in a period of time in football where wages can’t be paid.

“Do I want a top striker? I certainly do, I really do, to help us. But I am also mindful that football clubs, a lot of them, are on the verge of going bust, and I have got to make sure that I do things correctly.

West Ham won four of their 2021 wins in the

Premier League

on Tuesday night with a 2-1 win over

West Brom
