An Express journalist has delivered a big Terem Moffi update as West Ham and Southampton maintain interest in the striker.

David Moyes admitted last week that he has changed his stance over January transfers and is now looking to be active in the window.

Besides their obvious goalscoring issues, Moyes may well have been forced into a rethink with West Ham’s relegation rivals already making a number of signings.

One thing is for certain West Ham and Southampton need to start scoring more goals if they are to avoid a disastrous relegation.

It has been widely reported this week that West Ham are battling the likes of the Saints to sign Lorient star Moffi.

Especially since the Hammers were snubbed by Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

According to Get French Football News, Lorient want around 30 million Euros (£26.4m) for the 23-year-old talent.

Encouragingly for West Ham and Southampton, Foot Mercato claims Moffi wants to leave Lorient.

The super fast forward has been one of the standout strikers in Ligue 1 this season and GFFN predicts interest will ramp up in the remaining weeks of the window.

Well that certainly seems to be the case and if West Ham and Saints are seriously interested then Moyes and Nathan Jones need to act quickly.

Ryan Taylor claims Lorient’s Ligue 1 rivals Nice have joined West Ham and Southampton in the race for Moffi after agreeing to sell former Wigan striker Andy Delort to Nantes.

“Both West Ham and Southampton are understood to have had bids rejected last week by Lorient for the Nigerian international centre-forward, who has scored 11 goals in 17 top-flight matches this season in France,” Taylor reports for The Express.

“The two Premier League clubs remain in talks over a deal with Lorient continuing to demand £25m for their talisman.”

If West Ham allow rock-bottom Southampton to beat them to Moffi and he ends up being the difference-maker in the battle to beat the drop then there will be serious questions to be answered at the London Stadium.
