According to a report from Italian media outlet L’Arena, West Ham have been chasing Hellas Verona manager Ivan Juric for the last two months. And that obviously sounds ominous for David Moyes, if true of course.
The Scot took over from Manuel Pellegrini in December 2019. but in truth, he hasn’t really made much of a difference for the Hammers.
West Ham are still in real relegation trouble. And Moyes’s management style still seems to be rather uninspiring.
Italian publication L’Arena suggest that Hammers owners David Sullivan and David Gold are keen admirers of Hellas Verona boss Ivan Juric. And they have allegedly been chasing him for the last two months.
Calcio Mercato also claimed back in March that the talented young coach is a target for the east London outfit.
Juric was appointed as Hellas Verona boss in the summer of 2019, having just been promoted to Serie A.
Impressive work during fledgling managerial career thus far
And the Croatian has worked wonders at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Hellas are currently sitting in eighth spot in the Serie A table. And Calcio Mercato suggest that the 44-year-old has been a revelation in Italy this season.
Moyes will have just 12 months remaining on his current contract when the summer rolls around.
Much will obviously depend on how West Ham finish the season.
If they avoid relegation, it could be argued that Moyes deserves another year at least at the helm at the London Stadium.
Whatever happens, however, the West Ham boss will surely be looking nervously over his shoulder after the latest report about Juric from L’Arena.
