West Ham: David Moyes eyeing ‘big name’ midfield signing

West Ham: David Moyes eyeing ‘big name’ midfield signing -Follow up

According to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown, David Moyes ‘definitely’ wants a major midfield addition for West Ham this summer.

The Lowdown: Getting down to business

The 59-year-old has already made a strong start to the transfer window having completed the signings of Nayef Aguerd, Alphonse Areola and most recently Flynn Downes.

Those three aren’t likely to be the only fresh faces that we see walking through the doors at the London Stadium in the coming weeks though, with the Scot believed to have wanted six new additions after Aguerd and rumours circling of bids for Amadou Onana.

The Latest: Brown’s transfer claim

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Brown insisted that Moyes would target someone similar to Kalvin Phillips in midfield after missing out on the Manchester City star. He said:

“So, nobody quite knows the real situation there, but Moyes definitely wants a big name midfielder who knows the Premier League. He’s been in for, going back to the last window, they wanted Phillips, which was highly ambitious.”

The Verdict: Moyes’ midfield priority

Moyes’ existing midfield duo, Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek, are just two of the names to have been rumoured with a move away from the capital, so it’s understandable to see why he’s making this area of the pitch a priority.

The Irons have been linked with multiple central players over the past few weeks, including Onana, James Ward-Prowse and Santiago Ascacibar, with the latter said to have already opened formal talks over a move, though nothing official has yet been confirmed.

Will Moyes sign a new midfielder before the start of the new season?





It yet remains to be seen which of West Ham’s targets will be arriving in east London, but it’s clear that the boss wants to bolster his ranks further in case of any shock departures that might be on the horizon in the near future.
