ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham United will attempt to kick off their January transfer business early.
Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a busy man during the January transfer window.
West Ham need to make two or three strong signings if we are to maintain our position inside the top four between now and May.
The addition of a new centre-forward will be Moyes’s absolute number one priority.
With Said Benrahma set to head off to the Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria in the new year though, the signing of an attacking midfielder or winger will be needed as well.
ExWHUemployee claims West Ham could open talks to sign player imminently
The Hammers insider provided a big transfer update this afternoon.
Ex explained how our January transfer business could kick into action shortly, via the West Ham Way:
“I believe talks will start early with Lingard who is still expected to want to move. There will be competition for him and also a number of things to sort out with his deal.”
If we are indeed getting our ducks in a row this early before the transfer window opens then that’s great news.
Too often in the past we have been reactive rather than proactive in the transfer market. Perhaps things are changing.
Signing Jesse Lingard from Manchester United would be a huge coup for West Ham in January.
The 28-year-old could be available for just £10 million next month according to the Sun.
We think that would be good value for the Hammers considering just how important he was for us last season.
And surely the fact that he loved his time at the London Stadium will stand us in good stead as the competition for Lingard’s signature heats up.
