West Ham United: Insider makes behind-scenes transfer claim involving Moyes and Nunez

West Ham United: Insider makes behind-scenes transfer claim involving Moyes and Nunez -West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh, there has been a transfer update out of the club involving Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.

The Lowdown: West Ham in Nunez race…

One of the most sought-after strikers in Europe right now, it is believed that David Moyes and the club are firmly in the mix to sign Nunez this summer.

Protected by a €150m (£125m) release clause, Benfica are actually willing to sell for around half of that amount, alerting some of the Premier League’s elite as they eye a seriously in-form attacker.

West Ham are joined in their interest by the likes of Spurs and Newcastle United according to some reports (Record via Sport Witness), with English champions Manchester City having also been mentioned.

Now, as per Claret & Hugh, it appears that Moyes has been personally setting his sights on the Benfica star ever since the Irons’ failed January bid.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

The Latest: Moyes ‘on the case’ for Nunez…

According to the club insider, West Ham’s manager has been ‘on the case’ to sign Nunez as he personally works on a prospective transfer behind the scenes.

Claret & Hugh add that the 22-year-old is ‘keenly wanted’ by Moyes, who is ‘determined to land’ Benfica’s prolific forward.

The Verdict: Ambitious move…

Signing the Portuguese top-flight ace would be a hugely impressive West Ham coup given his ‘big name’ status and the sheer amount of competition for his signature.

GSB and the club will most likely have to smash their transfer record to sign Nunez, who has scored an extremely impressive 28 goals across 35 appearances in all competitions over 2021/22.

Will West Ham win the Europa League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Taking to Twitter, journalist and Breaking The Lines writer Maxi Angelo perhaps highlights why Moyes is so interested, with his take on the ‘incredible talent’ who has continued to evolve this season.

It is no secret that West Ham may need to sign an alternative to sole striker Michail Antonio if they are to remain in among the Premier League’s best, and Nunez certainly looks like he fits the bill.

If the Hammers can get a deal done, it would certainly be a statement and a very ambitious move.
