West Ham: Spanish source makes interesting Depay claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to reports out of Spain, an interesting West Ham United transfer development has now come to light involving Barcelona forward Memphis Depay.

The Lowdown: Moyes eyes reinforcements…

Hammers boss David Moyes has reportedly set his sights on upgrading his side’s options for the 2022/2023 Premier League season with a new defender, midfielder and forward on the agenda (The Times).

There’s been no shortage of rumours with Wolfsburg forward and current Torino loanee Josip Brekalo becoming linked over the last few days, as well as Watford star Emmanuel Dennis.

West Ham are allegedly busy ahead of the looming transfer window and now more news has come out on their search for new attackers courtesy of ABC (via Sport Witness).

The Latest: West Ham make move…

According to their information, the Irons are one of a few clubs to have initiated contact with Barcelona over Depay as the east Londoners, and by extension Moyes, make a pre-summer move.

This comes as the Catalans green-light his sale next window with Barca now transfer-listing their winger.

The Verdict: Promising?

Depay, despite his club’s need to sell, has actually enjoyed a brilliant campaign going by the numbers.

According to WhoScored, the Netherlands international is Xavi’s third-best performer in La Liga going by average match rating per 90 (7.14) and has even racked up the joint-most goals and assists combined for them domestically (12G, 2A).

Called a ‘phenomenal all-round forward‘ by BBC Sport writer and football analyst Premier League Panel last year, he’s certainly maintained that tag over 2021/2022.

Depay’s club apparently value him at around €40 million (£34m) and that is an arguable bargain given his form and the fact Lyon’s former star is still very much in his prime at 28-years-old.
