According to The Telegraph, West Ham has reportedly made a bid for Danny Ings of Aston Villa as David Moyes seeks to improve his attacking options after having trouble scoring goals this season.

The Hammers are now in the running to sign Ings during the winter transfer window, according to a prior report from The Daily Mail [5 January] that they were hoping to add a striker this month.

The 30-year-old has scored 68 goals in fewer than 200 Premier League games throughout his career, and he is presently Villa’s leading scorer in the English top division with six goals.

Only 15 goals have been scored by the Hammers in 19 league games this season, and the club is keen to bring in some firepower with Moyes’ team presently languishing in the relegation zone with 15 points.

Additionally, the Hammers have submitted a proposal to recruit the former Southampton striker this month, according to Telegraph reporter Mike McGrath [18 January]. His current employers value him at roughly £15 million.

The acquisition of Ings might be the impetus Moyes needs to turn the season around for the Hammers.

The 30-year-old has played only a minor role for Villa this season, but he has still scored six goals, demonstrating his consistency and dependability as a goal threat.

With talent like Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio at Moyes’ disposal, the Hammers’ 19-game goal total of 15 is appalling and made all the more shocking.

None of them, though, has Ings’ background or ability to score goals on a regular basis.

Considering that Antonio is also rumored to be leaving this month or at the end of the season, adding Ings makes a lot of sense because the Est London club might give him the consistent playing time he needs.
