According to talkSPORT, Wolves have identified Michail Antonio as one of their top targets for January (10 January).

According to reports, the struggling Premier League team is also thinking about making a January transfer for Hammers defender Craig Dawson [Dharmesh Sheth, Twitter, 10 January].

Antonio, according to Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui, might help his team’s offensive as they attempt to escape the relegation zone.

Wolves have no chance of signing Antonio this month, but they do have a possibility of signing Dawson.

Since joining the Hammers in 2015, the 32-year-old striker has appeared in over 250 games and scored 66 goals.

He carried the heavy weight of scoring as the club’s lone striker for the previous two seasons.

Given his age this season, David Moyes has treated Antonio with care. In the league, he has made seven starts, and the other 10 games have all been as a substitute.

Despite Gianluca Scamacca’s arrival, he continues to be an important member of the team.

In all competitions, the former Nottingham Forest striker has four goals.

Antonio’s contract at the London Stadium is valid until 2024, with a one-year extension option available to the club.

To sign Antonio, Wolves will need to make a pretty strong offer, but even then, Moyes wouldn’t want to lose him.

It’s challenging to find a striker in January, and the Hammers may find themselves in serious trouble if they are unable to do so.
