According to a report from the Sheffield Star, West Ham boss David Moyes has ‘cast admiring glances’ at Sheffield United ace John Lundstram.
The Hammers boss may well be keen to bolster his central midfield ranks even further still this summer.
Moyes has already brought Tomas Soucek to the London Stadium on a permanent deal. But with Carlos Sanchez having already left east London and Mark Noble on the wrong side of 33, the addition of another centre midfielder might be on the cards.
The Sheffield Star claims that the 57-year-old West Ham boss is an admirer of Sheffield United ace John Lundstram. It is noted, however, that the Hammers are not currently in the race to sign the Blades star.
The 26-year-old joined Sheffield United in the summer of 2017 from Oxford United, and he has gone on to be a real hit for Chris Wilder at Bramall Lane.
Lundstram played a key role for the Blades this season, racking up five goals and three assists in 34 Premier League games (Transfermarkt).
The midfielder’s future with the Yorkshire club is up in the air at the moment, however, with the Sheffield Star reporting that he has been in contract talks with the Blades for around a year..
Lundstram has just one year remaining on his current deal at Bramall Lane. So if he doesn’t sign a new contract this summer, he will most likely be moved on.
And if West Ham do in fact admire the midfielder, it will be no surprise to see them make a move for the 26-year-old before the start of next season.
Especially given the fact that he will most likely be available for a bargain fee.
