West Ham: Alex Crook makes definitive transfer claim

West Ham: Alex Crook makes definitive transfer claim -West Ham News

West Ham United are ‘definitely’ eyeing a marquee Premier League star who manager David Moyes personally wants, according to talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook.

The Lowdown: Moyes eyeing fresh faces…

The Scotsman, aiming to maintain his side’s quite remarkable rise since nearly being relegated two years ago, quite simply must strengthen his West Ham squad for the 2022/2023 season.

A striker, centre-half and midfielder are reportedly on the agenda in east London and the Hammers apparently have their eye on a marquee addition for the latter position.

The Sun believe Moyes personally ‘wants’ Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips but his club could demand as much as £60 million to let him go.

The Latest: Crook makes definitive West Ham claim…

Speaking to GiveMeSport, talkSPORT reporter Crook says that the Irons are ‘definitely’ eyeing a move this summer.

He explains:

“Kalvin Phillips, I think, has a decision to make. He might go either way and West Ham are definitely keen on him.

“It would offer him the chance to play in European football alongside Declan Rice and really cement that relationship ahead of maybe replicating it at the World Cup.”

The Verdict: Make a move…

The England international would be a more-than ideal fit to upgrade Moyes’ options in the middle.

Lauded as a would-be ‘perfect’ signing by former West Ham favourite Frank McAvennie, Phillips has been a pivotal figure for Leeds when available.

He’s averaged the joint-second most tackles per 90 for the Elland Road side over 2021/2022 whilst also completing the third-most dribbles, backing just how composed and assured he can be in midfield (WhoScored).

While £60m could be a hefty price to pay, it would certainly display real intent on behalf of West Ham and GSB.
