According to Claret and Hugh, West Ham boss David Moyes is interested in bringing Adam Lallana to the London Stadium this summer. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

The east London outfit will have to be thrifty in the transfer market this summer. The global health crisis has affected many football clubs up and down the country.
And West Ham will clearly not have lavish funds to spend this summer.
David Moyes recently suggested that he will be targeting moves for young and hungry players from the Championship with great potential.
So a move for Liverpool star Lallana quite simply doesn’t make sense.
The 32-year-old Champions League winner is well past his best. He is injury prone and extremely unreliable from a fitness perspective.
Sure, the 34-capped England international was a great player in his day. But the last thing West Ham need is another highly paid ageing star. Lallana currently earns £110,000 per week at Liverpool (Spotrac).
Jurgen Klopp will be powerless to prevent the 32-year-old from leaving Anfield. His contract expires at the end of this season.
So the experienced play-maker’s availability on a free might just appeal to the Hammers.
Some West Ham fans have made it very clear that they don’t want Lallana signed on a free transfer, however…
Fits the bill for West Ham perfectly. Past his best, injury prone and on a huge wage! Welcome Adam!

West Ham: we want to sign young, hungry players.
Also West Ham: 30something, injured, 6 figure wage on a free? Oh go on then
