West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Wolves ace Morgan Gibbs-White to the London Stadium this summer, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
The 57-year-old Scot will be keen to bolster his attacking midfield options this summer.
With Manuel Lanzini in the midst of a poor run of form, the Hammers really lack any kind of creativity in the middle of the park.
And it has been widely reported that West Ham want Queens Park Rangers ace Eberechi Eze to fill that void (most recently by the Daily Mail).
And now the Daily Maill are claiming that Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is on the Hammers’ radar.
Nuno Espirito Santo will surely want to keep the 20-year-old at Molineux. But if he is guaranteed more regular game-time in east London, a move away from the Black Country could be on the cards for the young midfielder.
Gibbs-White only made 13 appearances for Wolves last season. And he failed to score a goal or register an assist (Who Scored).
In fairness to the youngster, however, he only played 395 minutes in those games, so he wasn’t given much of a chance to impress.
It is clear to see that the 20-year-old has incredible talent.
Danny Murphy described the youngster as sensational, when speaking on BBC’s Match of the Day programme 20 months ago (November 5th 2018):
“It’s very rare you see someone at this age and say wow. His vision and the effect he had in such a short space of time was brilliant. His ability to run with the ball was amazing and I think he is exactly the type of player we’re crying out for. Have they got the mentality you need and Gibbs-White…that pass, not many players would have the vision. It’s not just about the execution but being able to see the pass. He is sensational.”
Signing Gibbs-White would be an incredibly bold move from West Ham. It seems highly likely that Wolves will not want to let the talented youngster leave Molineux this summer, however.
