Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 23-year-old left-back to the London Stadium this summer according to a report from Il Mattino.

It seems as though the Scot and the West Ham fans could be left disappointed once again, however.

Pervis Estupinan would have been a very useful addition for the Hammers.

Aaron Cresswell is set to turn 32 at the end of this year and Arthur Masuaku is certainly better when deployed in a more advanced role.

West Ham to miss out on Estupinan?

The 23-year-old wants to move to Napoli instead of the Hammers according to a report from Area Napoli.

If true, that’s a big blow for West Ham because the Ecuador international is a top class full-back.

In 25 La Liga outings for Villarreal last season, Estupinan averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 0.5 clearances per game.

The South American is a strong, tenacious tackling full-back. He has plenty of pace as well.

Estupinan seems custom built for Premier League football.

The 23-year-old would have been a very useful addition to Moyes’s squad at the London Stadium this summer.
