The Lowdown: Moyes sets his sights…
The Hammers could be set for one of their more eventful summer transfer windows over the last few years.
It is reliably believed that manager David Moyes and head of recruitment Rob Newman could be ‘very busy’ and want ‘at least’ six new signings before the start of 2022/23 (Sky Sports).
West Ham narrowly missed out on a place in the Europa League, losing out to Manchester United on the final day of last season, with the east Londoners seemingly determined to realise their potential this time round.
The Latest: West Ham make Eriksen ‘offer’…
According to The Daily Mail, in-demand potential free agent Eriksen now has an ‘offer’ from West Ham – but they aren’t the only outfit pursuing the 30-year-old.
Indeed, Man United, Everton, Leicester, Ajax and his current club Brentford are said to have also approached the Dane as Moyes faces a stiff battle for his services.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
The Verdict: Keep pushing…
As per WhoScored, it’s evident that Eriksen can still be a huge asset for any top-flight club, especially as he finished 2021/22 as Brentford’s best-performing player by average match rating.
Even though Irons legend Paolo Di Canio claimed that the 30-year-old is ‘like Hazard’ for the wrong reasons during Eriksen’s time at Inter, namely for being ‘silent’ and ineffective during that period (Sky Sports Italia, via Daily Mail), it’s clear to see that the former Spurs star has since turned a corner and may well upgrade West Ham’s options in and around the final third.
