As Michail Antonio speaks out on goal drought, West Ham linked with Brazilian forward

Michail Antonio speaks out on goal drought for West Ham

Michail Antonio had a prolific opening to the 2021/22 campaign for West Ham.

In his first nine league outings of the campaign, he would score six and assist three.

However, much to the annoyance of many a Fantasy Premier League fan, Antonio has not scored a league goal since the 24th of September, with his last goal in Europe coming back on the 16th of that month.

Now though, ahead of West Ham’s League Cup tie with Tottenham, Antonio has been discussing his problems in front of goal:

“I will always enjoy the prospect of playing at their new stadium after becoming the first visiting player to score a winner against Spurs there a couple of years ago.

“I am confident in my ability, so I don’t need anybody to jump on me because I am jumping on myself already.

“I’m a person who demands the best from myself and I am getting frustrated in myself that I have not scored in so many games, so you don’t need to get on my back as I’m already on my own back.

“I am going to go out there, give my all and hopefully this week I can put the ball in the back of the net for me and for the team.”


West Ham linked with Gabriel

West Ham, though, seemingly feel that Antonio needs some help up top and have recently been linked with another striker.

That man is Gabriel Barbosa, who scored 29 and assisted nine in 43 ties for Flamengo during the Brazilian top-flight’s 2020/21 campaign.

And, as per Euro Sport, Gabriel is interesting West Ham United ahead of the January window, with the South American said to be ready to weigh up offers when they start to land in January.

No potential fee is mentioned in the report.
