David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his right-back options at the London Stadium this summer.

Jeremy Ngakia could walk away for free next month (Claret and Hugh), whilst Pablo Zabaleta will be leaving the Hammers as well.

Meanwhile, Ryan Fredericks has flattered to deceive since joining West Ham in the summer of 2018.

And Estadio Deportivo claim that Moyes will be looking to address that problem by signing Newcastle ace Javi Manquillo.

The Spaniard then joined Newcastle in the summer of 2017 for a fee believed to be worth £4.25 million, according to 90Min. That was just after a season-long loan spell at Sunderland. The 26-year-old was brought to the Stadium of Light by David Moyes.

 

So the West Ham boss is obviously a big fan of Manquillo.

The Newcastle ace has made 13 Premier League appearances so far this season, racking up one assist (Transfermarkt).

In those 13 outings, the Spaniard has averaged 2.1 tackles, 0.8 interceptions and 2.1 clearances (Who Scored).

Manquillo will be available on a free transfer this summer. So Steve Bruce will be powerless to prevent the 26-year-old from leaving St James’ Park.

The former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid ace can play at left-back as well as right-back. So he might just be a real coup for West Ham this summer. Especially on a free transfer.
