The Hammers manager desperately needs to bolster his right-back ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Ryan Fredericks has been poor over the past two seasons, and it could be argued that Ben Johnson is now Moyes’s first-choice right-back.

In an ideal world, however, West Ham would sell Fredericks and bring someone else in to compete with Johnson.

And the Telegraph claims that Everton ace Jonjoe Kenny could be the man for the job.

Moyes will know the 23-year-old from the Scot’s time in charge at Goodison Park when the full-back was in the Toffees’ Academy.


Kenny spent last season on loan with Bundesliga out Schalke. And he really impressed.

The Everton owned right-back played 31 Bundesliga games last season, and racked up two goals and three assists (Who Scored).

In those 31 appearances, Kenny made 1.6 tackles, 0.8 interceptions and 2.4 clearances on average per game (Who Scored).

Whether Ancelotti will be prepared to sell the 23-year-old permanently after his fine season on loan with Schalke remains to be seen.

But if West Ham can prise him away from Goodison Park for a decent fee he could end up being a very useful addition for the east London outfit.
