West Ham manager David Moyes is targeting more youthful signings for the squad moving forward, according to journalist Paul Brown.
The Lowdown: Hammers riding the crest of a wave
It has been a fantastic start to the season by West Ham, with their stunning 3-2 win at home to Liverpool in their last game perhaps the high point of their campaign so far. Moyes’ men sit third in the Premier League after a wonderful run of form, not to mention looking healthy in the Europa League and Carabao Cup as well.
The hope is that the Hammers’ superb run continues on Saturday, as they return to league action with a tough-looking trip to Wolves.

The Latest: Brown makes transfer claim
Despite their current success, West Ham always appear to be on the lookout for new signings, and Brown has revealed an insight into Moyes’ current approach. Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist claimed that the Hammers boss is eyeing up younger signings in order to plan for the future.
He outlined: “Moyes has said over and over again in public and in private to us that he’s trying to build a younger, hungrier side that can grow.”
The Verdict: Shrewd approach from Moyes
This is a refreshing update from Brown, as it shows that Moyes is very much looking at the long-term picture rather than just putting together a team for instant gratification.
The 58-year-old clearly sees that this is a wonderful opportunity to build something special at West Ham, with a great team at his disposal currently but also one which will eventually need freshness added to it.
Signing younger faces and integrating them into the squad makes total sense, allowing them to hopefully mature into key performers as they learn from more seasoned professionals who have grown into core players at the London Stadium.
