If David Moyes’s latest reported transfer target is to be believed, the Kiwi’s days at the London Stadium could very well be numbered.

According to a report from Spanish publication AS, West Ham want to sign Monaco centre-back this summer.
And if the Hammers do bring the 6ft 4in Chilean to the London Stadium, Reid will surely be surplus to requirements.
The 25-capped New Zealand international joined the Hammers from FC Midtjylland in the summer of 2010 for around £5.25 million (Eurosport).
The 31-year-old has made 223 appearances for West Ham, with 166 of those coming in the Premier League.
In those league games, Reid has racked up 242 tackles with an incredible success rate of 79%, 348 interceptions and 1,301 clearances (premierleague.com).
Atrocious injury record
Reid hasn’t played a senior game for the Hammers since March 2018. And he is currently out on loan with MLS side Sporting Kansas City.
The popular centre-back has experienced horrendous injury problems at West Ham. But he is still under contract with the east London outfit until the summer of 2023.
So if the Hammers can get a decent fee for Reid at the end of the season, they should not hesitate to move him on.
And if Moyes brings Maripan to the London Stadium, it will surely be curtain’s for the 31-year-old’s West Ham career.
