Over the last week, reports of West Ham leading the chase for Championship stars have surfaced.

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

The Latest: West Ham also in pole for Worrall…

As per C&H, it appears the Hammers are also in pole position for towering centre-back Worrall after the development involving Baggies ace Johnstone.

The insider says West Ham now ‘appear poised to win the race’ for Forest’s colossal defensive presence who is ‘very much a Moyes type player’.

Irons youngster Emmanuel Longelo could even be used in a part-exchange deal, going by what C&H have heard from a ‘top club insider’.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Nottingham Post writer Leigh Curtis, taking to Twitter, branded both Worrall and fellow Forest centre-back Scott McKenna ‘magnificent’ on Twitter last year with Steve Cooper possessing ‘some partnership’.

Drawing acclaim from the media for his performances over 2021/2022, the 25-year-old could be a very attractive option for Moyes, especially considering he is homegrown and possesses a real physicality for the top flight.

The 6 foot 4 powerhouse has averaged the joint-most interceptions and joint-most blocks per 90 for Forest in the Championship this season, standing out as a colossal figure (WhoScored).

He ranks in and among Cooper’s best performers with a solid 7/10 rating per 90 over the campaign, leaving little wonder Moyes is reportedly eyeing a move.

As West Ham enter pole, there is reason to believe Irons supporters could get excited by Worrall as a potential addition.
