West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern will have been disappointed with their 4-1 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, and will be calling for better performances from their side in their bid to avoid Premier League relegation.
The Hammers were poor throughout the game and will need to be much better in their final three games of the season if they are to stay in the Premier League, but the team will still need to be rebuilt in the summer.
Manager David Moyes has stated that he will not look at transfer targets until their status is confirmed – however, a goalkeeper and defenders are thought to be high on his shortlist. And The Daily Mirror are claiming that the Irons are interested in bringing West Bromwich Albion’s Craig Dawson to the London Stadium in an effort to strengthen their defence.
The Baggies centre-back, who looks set to leave the Hawthorns with a number of others, has been crucial in recent matches, and has also attracted interest from Burnley and Premier League-bound Wolverhampton Wanderers such have been his impressive efforts for the relegation-threatened club.
The 27-year-old would add some much-needed depth to the Hammers backline as he is versatile and can play as a full-back, which could be another area Moyes begins to look at it in the future as he seeks to take the East London club to the next level next season.
Landlord’s Verdict: The locals in the Tavern will be concerned with the squad’s efforts about staying in the Premier League first before they look at bringing in players, but should they stay up, Dawson would be a target that the punters would welcome with open arms such has been his high level of consistency in recent seasons.
