West Ham United: Insider drops eye-catching Oleksandr Zinchenko transfer claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to club insider Claret & Hugh, there has been an intriguing update out of West Ham United as GSB target versatile Manchester City ace Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The Lowdown: Moyes set sights on left-back?

While manager David Moyes has mostly been tipped to bolster West Ham’s central defensive and striking options, there have also been links to full-back targets in recent months.

The likes of Antonee Robinson (Fulham) and Aaron Hickey (Bologna) are allegedly on Moyes’ radar with doubts surrounding Arthur Masuaku’s future in east London.

First choice Aaron Cresswell is also nearing the twilight phase of his career, meaning the Hammers may have to contemplate alternatives to the Englishman sooner rather than later.

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

Sharing an update, C&H have now shared some interesting news involving Zinchenko.

The Latest: Insider makes Zinchenko claim…

According to their Man City sources, the 25-year-old is ‘set to become the perfect target’ for GSB and West Ham as Sky Blues boss Pep Guardiola reportedly sets his sights on a new left-back at Eastlands.

Indeed, as per the insider, this could make Zinchenko contemplate his future at the club and Moyes is personally a ‘huge admirer’ of the makeshift defender.

They also go on to say that City value their man at around £40 million.

The Verdict: Superb option…

Still young, possessing bags of experience and having played semi-regularly in a star-studded squad over the last few seasons, we believe Zinchenko stands out as an incredible option for the Irons.

The Ukraine international’s versatility could also be a great asset for Moyes with Zinchenko adept at full-back and almost anywhere in an advanced midfield role (WhoScored).

Called a ‘magnificent player’ by Guardiola this season, the utility man also played an underrated role in City’s run to the 2021 Champions League final – putting on an impressive semi-final display against Paris-Saint Germain in particular.

While a move may be difficult, with Zinchenko’s high valuation potentially coming as a stumbling block, there is little denying he would upgrade Moyes’ roster.
