West Ham: Irons eye shock James Rodriguez move -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United are now eyeing a move for Colombia international and big name player James Rodriguez, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Hammers keep busy…

The Hammers and manager David Moyes have been busy in this summer transfer market as the club set sights on an emergency centre-back signing and the possible addition of a new midfielder.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

Having missed out on a place in the Premier League top six last season, West Ham appear determined not to miss out on Europa League/Champions League qualification again.

Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Alphonse Areola, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet have arrived at Rush Green as news now emerges on a head-turning new target.

The Latest: West Ham eye Rodriguez move…

Indeed, according to reports out of Spain, the east Londoners are now targeting former Everton playmaker Rodriguez amid his uncertain future at Al Rayyan in the Qatar League.

Marca claim West Ham, Galatasary and a ‘couple of teams in Greece’ have expressed an interest in the 31-year-old this summer.

The Verdict: Avoid…

Rodriguez’s quality has been evident in the past with footballing legend David Beckham even once tipping him to ‘become one of the world’s best players’ after a ‘spectacular’ game at the 2014 World Cup against Brazil (via Daily Express).

And he backed that form up at Real Madrid, contributing to 78 goals in 124 games,  winning two Champions League and two La Liga titles.

However, his unceremonious exit from the Toffees last summer could indicate an attitude problem which Moyes will be unlikely to try and tame at the London Stadium.

The Scotsman carefully vets transfer targets to pass his personality test and we believe Rodriguez could be a case West Ham will want to avoid.
