According to a report by West Ham United insiders Claret & Hugh, manager David Moyes is looking to install a European mentality akin to his time at Everton – with this behind the scenes claim potentially enough to excite plenty of Hammers supporters.
Moyes, who has so far lead his side to a solid Premier League start overall, especially in the last few matches, with points earned against the likes of Man City and Tottenham, is now aiming to garner a belief that the Hammers can qualify for Europe.
Can West Ham qualify for Europe?
Not a chance
Indeed, as per this inside claim, Moyes has one goal in mind to reshape the mentality of his backroom staff and players as they look to climb the ladder and potentially baffle critics with an, arguably, lacklustre squad in terms of attacking depth.
Moyes plan revealed
Moyes has had to cope without the likes of Michail Antonio this season, who recently suffered a hamstring injury, but his side did well to cope with the loss of a crucial player and garner excellent results on the field.
Claret & Hugh now suggest that the Scotsman wants to take that a step further, with the Hammers boss now eyeing a potentially massive success story in east London.
Moyes instilled that belief during his time at the Toffees, and now the club insiders suggest he senses that growing feeling among the West Ham players after their Premier League start.
Transfer Tavern take
Over their last six games, the Hammers have lost just once – away at Anfield – but they have picked up results against City and Spurs whilst reigning victorious over Fulham, Sheffield United and Leicester City.
Time will tell whether Moyes can guide West Ham to Europe, but it would be a phenomenal achievement and they have started to go the right way about it.
