West Ham United allegedly want to sign talented Middlesbrough winger Isaiah Jones in the summer transfer window after he terrorised Tottenham last season.
That’s according to a report from The Athletic who claim that the 22-year-old Lambeth-born attacker is firmly on the radar of Hammers boss David Moyes this summer.
And now the Scot needs to make Alphonse Areola’s move permanent, add a top-class centre-forward, an elite left-back, an energetic and powerful central midfielder and a pacy winger to his ranks at the London Stadium before the start of the new Premier League season.
And it seems as though the West Ham manager has someone in particular in mind to bolster the attacking wide areas at the club…
West Ham eyeing swoop for Isaiah Jones
The Athletic reckon that there Hammers are keen to bring the 22-year-old attacker back to London from Middlesbrough this summer.
We believe that Jones would be a truly stunning acquisition for West Ham.
Jones was in absolutely sensational form for Middlesbrough last season and he put in an unbelievable display against Tottenham in the FA Cup back in March.
The Lambeth-born ace was a key factor behind Boro’s memorable win at the Riverside.
Jones bagged 10 goal involvements in 42 Championship games for Middlesbrough last season (Transfermarkt).
The 22-year-old is a right winger by trade but has operated mostly as a right wing-back for Boro, especially since Chris Wilder took over at the Riverside in November. He can operate on either wing if need be.
Jones possesses blistering pace, exceptional dribbling ability and is incredibly strong. He proved that he has what it takes to succeed at the very highest level with his display against Tottenham three months ago.
He was recently described as ‘unplayable’ by The Mirror.
Jones could be available for around £15 million this summer according to a report from The Hartlepool Mail. That’s sensational value as far as we’re concerned.
And if West Ham sign Isaiah Jones for anything like that amount of money, we think it will end up proving to be a fabulous piece of business for the East London outfit.
