It will be inexcusable if West Ham allow ‘unbelievable’ Weston McKennie to join Leeds United ahead of us this month.

According to a report from well-renowned Italian football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Leeds have just made contact to sign the Juventus star.

Now, that’s bad news for the Hammers, with David Moyes thought to be keen to bring the United States International to the London Stadium.

McKennie is a special talent. Football Insider recently described the 24-year-old is an ‘unbelievable’ player. And he has all of the attributes needed to come in and replace Declan Rice, when he eventually leaves West Ham.

It seems as though the Hammers could be left behind as Leeds close in on the Juventus star though…

No excuse for West Ham to lose out on Weston McKennie to Leeds

The Hammers are surely more of an attractive proposition that the Whites aren’t we?

We can offer potential new signings the opportunity to live in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world and the squad of players at the London Stadium is far superior to the one at Elland Road.

Oh, and we have European football on offer as well.

McKennie is exactly the type of player Moyes should be signing, and losing out to Leeds for his signature will just be unacceptable.

The American is an incredibly industrious, hard-working and energetic central midfielder.

He was absolutely brilliant for the United States during the World Cup out in Qatar, and clearly has all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League.

Weston McKennie is the personification of pace, power and industry, and he’d be an incredible signing for West Ham or Leeds.

We really shouldn’t be allowing the Whites a chance to sign him though. And if he does move to Elland Road, the Hammers’ failure to sign him will be inexcusable in my opinion.
