West Ham boss David Moyes could be set to bid for Nottingham Forest right-back Matty Cash, according to an exclusive report from the Telegraph.
The British tabloid claims that Sheffield United have already had a £10 million offer rejected for Cash.
So the Hammers will obviously have to make an improvement on that offer if they are to land the 22-year-old.
Moyes will be desperate to sign a new right-back this summer.
Ryan Fredericks has been a total disappointment since moving to the London Stadium on a free transfer from Fulham in the summer of 2018.
Ben Johnson looks like a really exciting talent, but having a real battle for his place next season will be vital to his continued development.
And the Telegraph claims that Matty Cash could be the man for the job. Although West Ham will allegedly face competition from Southampton for the Forest ace’s signature.
In 42 Championship outings for Forest this season, Cash has racked up three goals and five assists (Who Scored).
In those appearances, the 22-year-old has averaged 2.6 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and three clearances per game (Who Scored).
Cash would clearly be an upgrade on Fredericks. The prospect of the 22-year-old battling it out with Ben Johnson for the right-back spot at the London Stadium surely must be an exciting one for West Ham fans.
With funds allegedly tight, however, the Hammers will have to dig deep to sign the Forest star this summer.
