According to a report from Football.London, West Ham boss David Moyes could go back in for Nottingham Forest ace Matty Cash in the summer.

Sky Sports reported in January that the Hammers submitted a £10 million offer, one that could rise to £12 million, for the 22-year-old Forest right-back.

According to a report from the Sun, however, Nottingham Forest were demanding £18 million for Cash.

West Ham desperately need to bolster their right-back department. Pablo Zabaleta is 35 and has completely lost his pace. The Argentine is leaving in the summer too. Ryan Fredericks, meanwhile, is currently injured, and has been out of form all season anyway.

And Football.London claims that Moyes could move to address that problem by bringing the impressive Forest youngster to the London Stadium in the summer.

 

Stats

In 36 Championship outings for Forest this season, Cash has racked up three goals and four assists (Who Scored).

In those appearances, the 22-year-old has averaged 2.8 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 2.8 clearances per game (Who Scored).

For just £18 million, the Forest ace could be great value for West Ham. That price could drop as well, due to the current global health crisis.

Forest will undoubtedly want to keep hold of Cash. But they might be forced into the selling if the player himself demands an exit from the City Ground.

And if the Hammers  do manage to sign the 22-year-old, he could end up being an excellent addition for them.
