West Ham made a huge error by not signing Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, with Liverpool and Manchester United now chasing his signature.

That’s according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport (print edition November 11th, page 10) who claim that both Liverpool and Manchester United are eyeing up moves for the €100 million (£88 million) rated winger.

Hammers boss David Moyes allegedly wants to bring Napoli starlet Kvaratskhelia to the London Stadium in January.

Unfortunately for Moyes though, he rejected the chance to sign the exceptional Napoli winger for a bargain fee from Rubin Kazan a couple of years ago (The Express).

That now looks like a terrible move from the Scot, with Liverpool and Manchester United eyeing up blockbuster moves to sign the 19-capped Georgia international.

Moyes has history with missing out on some great players, including the likes of James Maddison.

But his failure to sign Kvaratskhelia takes the biscuit…

West Ham left with huge regret as Liverpool and Manchester United line up Khvicha Kvaratskhelia moves

The two Premier League giants are closely watching the Napoli star ahead of potential £88 million moves to sign him according to Gazzetta dello Sport (print edition November 11th, page 10).

And if either Liverpool or Man United sign him, David Moyes will be ruing his shocking decision to pass up on the Georgian.

And since joining Napoli, the Georgia international has racked up eight goals and 10 assists in 17 outings for the Serie A side so far (Transfermarkt).

The talented youngster has been described as an ‘outstanding talent’ by former USSR international Vladimir Pilguy (MKRU).

Kvaratskhelia can play anywhere along the front-line and possesses unbelievable technique.

The Georgian ace is well on his way to becoming one of the very best, most exciting attacking players in world football.

Manchester United or Liverpool signing Khvicha Kvaratskhelia will highlight the huge mistake that West Ham made a couple of years ago.

And it will be yet further evidence that our scouting department was almost entirely non-existent at the time.
