According to a report from the Mirror, Everton are ready to hijack West Ham boss David Moyes’ alleged move to sign Manchester United ace Diogo Dalot.
Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the Portuguese ace to the London Stadium on loan, according to ExWHUemployee.
But Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to pay £10 million to bring Dalot to Goodison Park (Mirror).
Both West Ham and Everton could do with signing an established right-back this summer.
Ryan Fredericks has failed to impress since joining the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.
Meanwhile at Everton, Seamus Coleman will be 32 in a couple of months.
And Dalot, who earns £25,000 per week (Spotrac) would be a decent option for both clubs.
Manchester United brought the 21-year-old to Old Trafford from Porto in the summer of 2018 for around £19 million (BBC).
The Portuguese right-back, who can also operate at left-back, has struggled to impress for Manchester United, however, with just 34 appearances to his name in the last two years.
Dalot played just four Premier League games this season, and he has fallen out of favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. An exit from Old Trafford could well be on the cards.
Now David Moyes and the West Ham board have a big decision to make. If Everton are indeed ready to pay £10 million for the 21-year-old right-back, then the Hammers need to act fast.
Dalot for £10 million would surely be an absolute steal.
And West Ham should not hesitate to match the Toffees’ reported offer for the Portuguese starlet.
The dilemma for the east London outfit, however, is that funds are currently very tight. They need to decide just how important signing a new right-back is this summer. The answer is very obvious as far as the club’s fans are concerned, however.
