According to a report from the Telegraph, West Ham boss David Moyes wants to sign Bournemouth full-back Adam Smith this summer. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
In other news…Insider claims he’s been told Moyes is desperate to make one specific signing this summer
Moyes desperately needs to bolster his full-back options this summer.
The left-back and right-back positions are both a real worry. Aaron Cresswell and Ryan Fredericks were both very poor last season.
The problem for the West Ham boss is that funds are tight at the London Stadium.
So considering the fact that Bournemouth ace Adam Smith can operate at both left-back and right-back, it is easy to see why the Hammers may be interested in signing him this summer.
The 29-year-old Leytonstone born full-back made 24 Premier League appearances for the Cherries last season. In those outings, he racked up one assist and averaged 2.1 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, and two clearances per game (Who Scored).
Smith is clearly a very solid Premier League performer. But he would hardly be a next level signing would he?
The trouble is, we have become so disillusioned and angry with the current goings on at the club that we would probably settle for any new signing at the moment.
Some West Ham fans took to Twitter and delivered their verdicts on the links with Adam Smith…
Think we should avoid both. But if Salthouse is their agent could happen.

Both clearly don’t fit the tag line of “next level” the board sold us! Both no better than Cresswell for me… ⚒😳

Neither are good enough. Neither improve on cresswell in my eyes

I thought the idea with new signings was that they are meant to improve the squad?

Again, would be just another lazy signing. Where’s the ambition, where’s the long term thinking?
