Dharmesh Sheth has shared an in-depth update on the Harry Maguire to West Ham United transfer collapse.
The Scot desperately needs to sign a top-class centre-back this summer. However, it seems like a move for Maguire may have never really been on in the first place…
Dharmesh Sheth makes new contradictory claim about West Ham United’s Harry Maguire transfer chase
The Sky Sports reporter took to Twitter last night as news began to break about the Maguire to West Ham transfer collapsing.
However, Sheth offered a different slant on what had been reported by suggesting that the transfer process was far less advanced than what was being portrayed in the media:
I would have liked Harry Maguire at West Ham, but the key for Moyes here will be to move on to other targets now, rather than carry on up a blind alley.
The Hammers boss urgently needs to sign a new centre-back, having sold Craig Dawson back in January. In addition to that, Angelo Ogbonna is surely now in his final season with the club whilst doubts remain over Kurt Zouma’s long-term fitness.
There are plenty of options out there for us. The likes of Jonathan Tah, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Odion Kossounou are all available.
Who knows? In the long run, missing out on Harry Maguire may end up being a blessing in disguise for West Ham.
