West Ham: Insider makes interesting Ward-Prowse transfer claim

West Ham: Insider makes interesting Ward-Prowse transfer claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United insider Claret and Hugh have shared an interesting update on the club’s transfer plans involving Southampton star James Ward-Prowse.

The Lowdown: Hammers set for busy summer…

Reports suggest the Irons and manager David Moyes could be set for quite a busy summer as West Ham aim to make up for what was a lack-lustre January window.

Late moves for Atalanta forward Duvan Zapata and Benfica star Darwin Nunez failed to materialise as the Hammers head coach ended winter with zero new signings or transfer backing.

The Premier League side finished 2021/2022 in seventh, just missing out on a Europa League place to Manchester United, potentially making many wonder what might have been had Moyes’ side landed some fresh upgrades.

Allegedly determined to redeem their lack of action this time round, some West Ham movement has already been mooted behind-the-scenes, with C&H now claiming that Moyes is also eyeing an interesting signing.

The Latest: C&H make Ward-Prowse claim…

As per the club insider, sharing news on West Ham’s ‘surprising’ recruitment policy thus far, Moyes personally ‘hopes of getting’ Ward-Prowse from Southampton in an ‘ambitious’ move.

This comes as Tomas Soucek, despite being crowned Hammers Player of the Year in 2020/2021, could be ‘on his way’ this summer – as shared by the report.

The Verdict: Marquee…

Ward-Prowse will be an extremely difficult move for Moyes to pull off going by recent claims.

The 27-year-old could cost up to £75 million to prise away from St. Mary’s Stadium and we believe it is hardly a surprise Southampton will make it as difficult as possible.

According to WhoScored, Ward-Prowse has been an untouchable in Ralph Hasenhuttl all season, playing the most top-flight minutes out of anyone in his squad and even finishing the campaign as their top goalscorer.

The fact he averaged their highest match-rating per 90 (7.01/10) and made more key passes per 90 than any Saints player is further evidence of the Englishman’s tag as a ‘cracking’ player (Noel Whelan, Football Insider).
