West Ham boss David Moyes has admitted that his club is not able to sign a replacement for striker Sebastien Haller this month, as per 90min.
The 26-year-old joined the Hammers in the summer of 2019 and was expected to fill the void left following the departure of Marko Arnautovic to the Chinese Super League.
Haller showed glimpses during his stay at the London Stadium, but he ultimately failed to emulate the consistency of Arnautovic.
It was revealed last week that the Ivorian’s stay in the Premier League was over, as he signed for Ajax for £20 million.
Haller’s departure has given the Hammers addition funds, but it isn’t likely that the club will have the resources to bring in a replacement during this window.
“One thing you need to do as a manager, you need to make sure that you have spaces to bring people in,” Moyes said.
“If you don’t have spaces then all you do is gather players, and it becomes more difficult.
“So, part of the job is to create room for it, we have now created room that we can bring players in. Are we ready for that? No, not really. But we will go along, and we’ll do what we can, and we will try and bring in what we think are the right players.”
