David Moyes is reportedly still hoping to bring Conor Gallagher to West Ham United from Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea ace Conor Gallagher is still firmly on the West Ham radar in the summer transfer window, according to a report from the Mirror.

Hammers boss David Moyes obviously needs to bring some top-class central midfield reinforcements to the London Stadium this summer, with Declan Rice having left to join Arsenal.

However, Gallagher doesn’t want to leave Chelsea this summer, and instead wants to stay at Stamford Bridge and fight for his place under Mauricio Pochettino.

That doesn’t seem to have put off David Moyes though…

The Mirror reckon that the Scot is still hopeful of bringing the England international to the London Stadium this summer.

I’m just hoping that Moyes doesn’t spend all summer chasing Gallagher when there are plenty of alternative options out there available.

Football.London have described the 23-year-old as ‘incredible’, and on his day he really is a very good player.

However, West Ham shouldn’t be paying anything like £50 million for Conor Gallagher. I think £35-40 million would be decent business for the Hammers but no more than that.

I don’t understand why Moyes is pursuing English Premier League players who clearly aren’t desperate to join West Ham, when there are people like Ibrahim Sangare, Sofyan Amrabat and Khephren Thuram all out there on the market.

Gallagher wouldn’t be a bad signing for us, I’m not suggesting that he would be. However, there are plenty of better and more cost effective options out there for the Hammers this summer as far as I’m concerned.
