West Ham: Moyes eyeing move for Maxwel Cornet

West Ham: Moyes eyeing move for Maxwel Cornet -West Ham News

West Ham United manager David Moyes is eyeing a move for Burnley attacker Maxwel Cornet, according to journalist Alan Nixon (via West Ham Zone).

The Lowdown: Cornet’s season

The Ivory Coast international was a bright spark in a struggling Clarets side last season, who were relegated from the Premier League having amassed just seven wins all year.

The 25-year-old winger made 26 top-flight appearances, contributing nine goals to the squad – totalling over a quarter of Burnley’s goals for the season.

With the Clarets’ relegation to the Championship, a whole host of Premier League sides have been linked with a move for Turf Moor man.

The Latest: Nixon’s news

Nixon has shared the latest news on Cornet’s transfer interest. Taking to his Patreon (as shared by West Ham Zone), the journalist claimed:

“West Ham boss David Moyes wants Maxwel Cornet and is willing to pay £20 million for him.

“Hammers chief Moyes has cash to spend and has turned his sights to landing quick and skilful Cornet.

“Burnley are willing to sell Cornet if the deal is right.”

Hammers fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Get it done

After Cornet scored twice in Lyon’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City in 2018, Pep Guardiola was left stunned the 25-year-old, saying: “I was very impressed by the talent of Maxwel Cornet.”

And it’s fair to say the numbers support the Spaniard’s analysis. As per FBRef, compared with positional peers across Europe over the past year, the winger ranks in the top 25 percent for tackles and interceptions as well as non-penalty goals, proving equally effective on both sides of the ball.

Should West Ham sign Cornet?

Yes

Yes

No

For the money being quoted, this seems like a shrewd bit of business for the Hammers, with Moyes adding creativity, pace and skill (The Athletic) in one swift move.
