West Ham are interested in signing Liverpool ace Adam Lallana in the summer, according to a report from the Telegraph.

And it’s no surprise. David Moyes allegedly wanted to sign the 31-year-old when he was in charge of Manchester United.

According to an exclusive report from the Express in April 2014, Moyes wanted to bring then Southampton ace Lallana to Old Trafford.

Unfortunately for the Scot, however, he was sacked from his post as Manchester United boss just a couple of weeks after that report.

And Lallana ended up joining Liverpool from the Saints for £25 million in the summer of 2014 (BBC).

Moyes has become somewhat of a journeyman manager since his United sacking. The 56-year-old has been in charge of Real Sociedad, Sunderland and West Ham twice over the past five years or so.

 

And not too many Hammers fans were overly enamoured when he was reappointed as manager at the London Stadium at the end of December.

West Ham have a real mountain to climb between now and the end of the season. Especially considering some of the fixtures that lie ahead of them.

If they do stay up, however, signing someone like Lallana could prove to be crucial to their hopes of cracking the top seven next season.

Whether the Liverpool man could be tempted into joining the Hammers, however, is another matter entirely.

The 34-England international’s career has taken off since joining Liverpool. And considering United’s current problems, he will surely be pleased that he joined the Merseyside outfit instead all those years ago.
