ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes is looking to sign Manchester United ace Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan this summer.
The 57-year-old Scot will be desperate to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
But the problem for Moyes is that he has little, if any, cash to spend in the transfer market. So he will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.
So with that in mind, Manchester United starlet Timothy Fosu-Mensah could be a great option for the Hammers, considering his versatility.
The 22-year-old can operate at right-back, centre-back and defensive midfield.
And ExWHUemployee suggested that West Ham could look to sign the Red Devils defender on loan this summer, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night (Wednesday August 12th):
“There are two options from Manchester United, Dalot, who I’ve mentioned before and Fosu-Mensah, he is a potential loan option.”
Fosu-Mensah is now at an age where he will want to be playing regular Premier League football. And he is unlikely to get that at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season.
In fact, the Sun claims that the 22-year-old’s current deal at United is due to expire next summer, with numerous Bundesliga clubs keen on his services.
So perhaps United would be open to selling the versatile starlet on a permanent deal.
And Fosu-Mensah would be a very wise addition for West Ham. Especially if David Moyes can get him on the cheap.
As ExWHUemployee suggested, however, a loan deal for the 22-year-old is more likely as things stand.
