Report: West Ham have made initial contact with Mauricio Pochettino to replace David Moyes

West Ham United are reportedly eyeing a charge for one time Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as a replacement for David Moyes.

That’s according to a report from Jeunes Footeux who claim that the Hammers have tested the waters for the Argentinian who managed Tottenham before leaving north London to take over at Paris Saint-Germain.

And if results don’t improve, Moyes could very well be shown the door at the London Stadium, according to a report from The Telegraph.

If Moyes is sacked at some point over the next month or so, who is out there available good enough to take over from the Scot? It seems as though the Hammers owners have one man in particular in mind…

French publication Jeunes Footeux claims that the Hammers have tested the water for Pochettino.

It his suggested by the French media outlet that Moyes’s situation at the London Stadium is becoming increasingly untenable.

Jeunes Footeux claim that there is a feeling at West Ham that the club are ‘falling behind the times’ with Moyes at the helm.

And if Poch was to take the job at the London Stadium, he would need guarantees of available funds in the January transfer window.

That may well prove to be tricky, considering how much money Moyes spent in the transfer market in the summer.

Personally, I think Mauricio Pochettino would be an exceptional appointment for West Ham United.

David Moyes will still be given a bit of time to turn things around, there’s no doubt about that. Should he fail to lift his West Ham side up to mid table at the very least before the break for the World Cup in November though, his days at the London Stadium may well be numbered.
