David Moyes could change priority transfer plan as West Ham target is filmed limping after pre-season game.

According to Sky Sports, West Ham manager David Moyes is very keen to sign Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay in the summer transfer window.

Man United are said to be demanding around £45 million for the 26-year-old midfielder.

I actually think McTominay would be a good singing for the Hammers, but we shouldn’t be paying anything like that for him.

McTominay came on as a second-half substitute during yesterday’s friendly clash with Real Madrid.

If it’s bad enough to keep him out beyond the end of the transfer window, David Moyes will undoubtedly have to explore other transfers targets.
