West Ham United’s hierarchy are eyeing up Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton Diaz in these final few weeks of the window, says journalist Ryan Taylor.
The Lowdown: Moyes keeping busy…
As reliably reported, Hammers boss David Moyes is aiming to keep busy over this last stretch of the summer with talks held for multiple targets.
Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
Hans Vanaken of Club Brugge and Chelsea defender Emerson Palmieri are thought to be next on the agenda after West Ham have already seal a plethora of signings.
Despite the acquisition of striker Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo, it is believed that the Irons are still keeping their eyes on forwards for Moyes.
The Latest: West Ham board eyeing Brereton Diaz…
Now, according to reporter Taylor, there has been an interesting update in the last 48 hours on their links to Brereton Diaz.
Writing for The Daily Express in his Tuesday column, the journalist claims West Ham’s board are definitely admirers of the Chile international, though they have yet to move for his services.
Brereton Diaz has continued his fine form from last campaign with two goals in three matches, seemingly attracting more suitors, including ones from abroad.
The Verdict: Get moving?
Former Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray, hailing Brereton Diaz as a ‘beast’, is seemingly just one of many admirers but a fairly large price tag comes with such a glowing reputation.
It is believed that Rovers could demand as much as £20m for the forward, and if so, the West Ham hierarchy’s love for him will surely be tested.
