The Lowdown: West Ham eye more signings…
The Premier League club are said to be eyeing a host of other transfer targets despite having sealed five first-team signings already this summer.
Indeed, it appears that David Moyes isn’t done yet, regardless of Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola (loan made permanent), Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet putting pen to paper at the London Stadium.
West Ham currently have a central defensive shortage, with the likes of Attila Szalai being targeted, while it is also believed that head of recruitment Rob Newman has his eye on central midfield signings.
The Latest: West Ham still want Sangare…
Aouna claims that West Ham are looking at PSV midfielder Sangare as an alternative to Amadou Onana.
Expanding on the 24-year-old’s recent new contract, the transfer reporter claims that Moyes’ side are unfazed by this development and remain in the running to sign the Eredivisie star (Foot Mercato).
The Verdict: Make the move?
Sealing a move for the midfield titan, who has also been targeted by Liverpool, would be quite the feat for West Ham, judging by his exploits over 2021/22.
As per WhoScored, Sangare – who has been called ‘extraordinary’ by former PSV manager Aad de Mos – was one of the Dutch top flight’s standout performers last term, making the second-most tackles (3.3) and interceptions (2.6) per 90 out of any player in the division.
Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
He also finished last season as the league’s seventh-highest rated player overall, with it being clear as to why he is a target for West Ham and Moyes.
Depending on his price tag, which could be quite high after his contract extension, it will be interesting to see if the Irons keep chasing him.
