According to a report the Sun, West Ham boss David Moyes would love to bring Real Sociedad winger Mikel Oyarzabal to the London Stadium.

The Hammers could be set for a summer re-shuffle in the attacking department, with Andriy Yarmolenko and Albian Ajeti facing uncertain futures in east London.

The Sun claims that the Scot is keen to sign Real Sociedad ace Mikel Oyarzabal having given the youngster his debut during his time in charge of the La Liga outfit.


The 22-year-old has been in great form for Sociedad this season. He has racked up 10 goals and seven assists in 33 appearances in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

In 26 La Liga outings, Oyarzabal has averaged 1.9 shots, 1.3 key passes and 2.2 dribbles per game. During those appearances, The seven-capped Spain international has averaged 27.7 passes per game with an impressive completion rate of 76.8% (Who Scored).


He is one of the most exciting young players in La Liga according to the Sun.

West Ham would have to spend big

The Spaniard clearly has a lot of talent. And the Hammers may find it hard to prise him away from Sociedad.

According to Calcio Mercato, Oyarzabal has a €50 million (£45 million) release clause inserted into his current contract.

So unless West Ham are ready to spend big, the young winger probably won’t be moving to east London anytime soon.

It might be one to keep an eye on for the future, however.
