West Ham United could also make a move for Blackburn Rovers forward Ben Brereton Diaz this summer amid their plethora of transfer activity, according to reliable insider ExWHUemployee.
The Lowdown: Hammers keep moving…
The arrivals of Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola and striker Gianluca Scamacca may well be the tip of the iceberg for manager David Moyes as the club become linked with even more new Premier League additions.
Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
Hammers talks have apparently been held over signing Eintracht Frankfurt star Filip Kostic and Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski as head of recruitment Rob Newman sets his sights on West Ham’s next targets after Scamacca.
Kostic and Zielinski appear to be the club’s major targets going by reports but the possibility of Moyes and co moving for even more players isn’t entirely ruled out.
The Latest: Ex says West Ham could swoop for Brereton Diaz…
Now, writing via his Patreon, club insider ExWHUemployee has made an interesting transfer claim involving Rovers attacker Brereton Diaz.
Indeed, Ex states that there is ‘talk’ of West Ham ‘also making a move’ for the 23-year-old given he has just one year remaining on his deal at Ewood Park.
The insider goes on to claim he could be a ‘good value’ signing but other players currently take priority right now.
The Verdict: Make the move…
Fresh off the back of a brilliant season for Blackburn, in which he scored an impressive 22 goals and managed three assists over 37 Championship appearances, there’s arguably little debate he could seriously upgrade Moyes options going forward.
Pundit Paddy Kenny certainly believed he would be a brilliant addition, having branded the Chile international ‘on fire’ and a potentially ‘exciting signing’ at West Ham if they can get a deal done (Football Insider).
