West Ham: Irons set sights on ‘very smart signing’ for Moyes

West Ham: Irons set sights on ‘very smart signing’ for Moyes -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United have now set a ‘big focus’ on a ‘very smart signing’ for manager David Moyes this summer, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Moyes eyes summer reshuffle…

The Hammers boss, reportedly earmarking the signing of a new central defender, midfielder and striker in the next transfer window, will need substantial backing from club owners GSB.

Head of recruitment Rob Newman is also tasked with negotiating deals to give Moyes exactly what he wants as the Scotsman aims to maintain West Ham’s status as a high-flying Premier League side.

Reaching the Europa League semi-finals this season represents a big achievement for the east Londoners and symbolises their remarkable rise, coming after they were fighting relegation just two years ago.

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

Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill is allegedly one man who Moyes believes could make a difference with the Clarets ace emerging as a target.

The Latest: Cudworth makes ‘big’ claim…

According to 90min reporter Toby Cudworth, while West Ham hold an interest in Leicester City playmaker Youri Tielemans, there is a ‘big’ focus on signing Brownhill this summer.

He explained (via Twitter):

“WHUFC are known admirers of Tielemans. Potential asking price of less than £40m will be attractive for many, many clubs… Still, big focus on Burnley’s Josh Brownhill at the moment – he’d be a very smart signing.”

The Verdict: Lodge bid?

The 26-year-old, who currently ranks as one of Burnley’s top five domestic performers going by average match rating, is a real all-rounder in midfield – according to WhoScored.

He has intercepted the second-highest amount of passes in Mike Jackson’s squad over 2021/2022 whilst also coming joint-second in terms of key passes made per 90 in the final third.

Effective defensively and further forward, his potential £15 million price tag seems fairly reasonable – leaving little wonder West Ham have now prioritised him as a target for Moyes.

Going by his value and quality, it appears the east Londoners have very little to lose by lodging a bid.
