According to The Mirror, Burnley manager Sean Dyche is not ruling out leaving the club, and these reports have caused a lot of Hammers fans to ask the club to make an approach for the Englishman.
The article writes that Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are keeping tabs on the manager, whilst Dyche said: “If the opportunity to come to somewhere that I thought would really enhance my chances as a manager to continue improving and continue testing myself, who knows?”
Would Dyche be a good manager for West Ham?
Dyche became manager of Burnley in 2012 after a year-long spell at Watford and he has been at the Yorkshire club ever since. His spell has spanned 338 matches, winning 120, drawing 90 and losing 120, per Transfermarkt. This gives him a 32.14% win percentage at the club, via managerstats, and with the squad he has had and the small amount of money they have spent compared to other clubs in the division, via Transfermarkt, this percentage highlights his good quality of management.
This is further proven by the fantastic job he has done with Burnley, including two promotions to the Premier League, and making the Clarets a formidable top-flight side who also achieved the unthinkable as they made it to the Europa League qualifiers in 2018.
His good work has not gone unnoticed, as he was tipped in the past by Arsenal legend Ian Wright to be capable of replacing Arsene Wenger at the Gunners, as per BBC Sport.
Here is what some West Ham fans said following the report:

I would like him, I think at his age and with a bit of cash he could change his style of management. He is a solid manager. I spoke to his brother the other day and said I would love him at West Ham.
