West Ham United boss David Moyes appears to have passed up two reported targets on deadline day.
West Ham have been linked with a move for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard ever since selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January.
Moyes needs another striker at West Ham. And he was reported to have been a big fan of French striker Edouard, who is out of contract at Celtic next summer.
Moyes snubs rumoured interest in Celtic striker Edouard as Palace close in on deadline day move
But despite his apparent desperation to get a striker signed, Moyes appears to have snubbed the opportunity to bring Edouard in as the former PSG man closes on a last ditch move to Crystal Palace.
The likes of Sky Sports claim Edouard is set to sign for the Eagles for a fee in the region of £14 million.
West Ham boss Moyes instead looks to have settled for signing attacker Nikola Vlasic who may be used as a second striker when needed.
Desperate Gunners move for defender Moyes reportedly looked at before making Zouma call
Another of West Ham’s struggling London rivals, Arsenal, also look set to sign an apparent Moyes reject.
But Moyes elected to spend an extra £9m to bring Kurt Zouma in from Chelsea instead.
And now basement club Arsenal look ready to bring Tomiyasu to the Premier League from Italian side Bologna according to the likes of Sky Sports.
Clear Moyes did not fancy duo if reported interest was accurate
Neither reported West Ham targets Edouard or Tomiyasu have completed their rumoured moves to Crystal Palace or Arsenal at the time of writing on deadline day.
And with only five hours left until the 11pm deadline there are no guarantees either will be done.
But what is clear is that Moyes was not convinced to push the boat out for either player if reported West Ham interest was true.
