ITK transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano has delivered a triple West Ham transfer update as David Moyes makes a decision.
West Ham fans are in expectant mood this summer window and rightly so.
Hammers boss Moyes is too having vowed to ‘go bigger’ in the summer after being unable to sign any of the players he wanted in January.
West Ham need at least six or seven quality signings in this window as Moyes faces a sizeable rebuild following a number of departures.
The Hammers have made a very encouraging start to the window with around £40m spent on classy centre-back Nayef Aguerd and making Alphonse Areola’s move permanent.
A striker, central midfielder, left-back and attacking midfielder are also on the agenda for West Ham.
The Irons have, as always, been linked with a host of targets.
The latest intense speculation surrounded Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma.
There has been much confusion surrounding a West Ham move for Danjuma, as covered earlier on Hammers News.
Chelsea-owned striker Armando Broja is said to be West Ham’s prime striker target while speculation has once again linked the Hammers with Jesse Lingard.
ITK transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano delivers triple West Ham transfer update as David Moyes makes decision
One man who knows his onions when it comes to transfers is Italian specialist Fabrizio Romano.
Now ITK transfer reporter Romano has delivered a triple West Ham transfer update as Moyes makes a decision to move on from Danjuma.
“Danjuma’s camp remain ‘relaxed’ as player would be happy to continue at Villarreal next year if no agreement will be found (with West Ham),” Romano said on Twitter.
“West Ham were ready to pay €40m (£35m), but far away on personal terms.
“Moyes, focused on top target Broja (no decision by Tuchel yet) and Lingard.”
It seems any West Ham move for Danjuma is now off with Moyes said to be ‘unconvinced’ by the player.
One player we know Moyes is convinced by is Lingard. So much so the Scot continues to chase him for a reunion at the London Stadium.
With Lingard available on a free and Broja said to be valued at around £30m by Chelsea – IF they decide to sell – that would be stunning business by West Ham.
And it would leave the Hammers needing a central midfielder and left-back.
With two months of the window remaining things are looking refreshingly optimistic for West Ham.
