West Ham are interested in signing Manchester United left-back Brandon Williams according to a report from the Sun.

The Hammers are short in the left-back department and although David Moyes will undoubtedly be prioritising a move for a striker, Williams wouldn’t be a bad option for us.
Money is tight at the London Stadium…apparently.
It’s just very frustrating that our owners don’t have the ambition to back David Moyes and really try and kick on to the next level.
Oh well, it is what it is.
The Sun claims that West Ham could be looking for cheap loan options this summer. One of them is Manchester United youngster Brandon Williams.
If we were to sign the 20-year-old on loan, we would obviously have to turn either Said Benrahma or Craig Dawson’s loan deals into permanent ones.
West Ham to move for Brandon Williams?
He is an attacking left-back in every sense and would be perfectly suited to play the left wing-back role for West Ham.
Brandon Williams has recorded 14 assists in 57 games for Man United’s youth sides. He has also chalked up three assists for their senior team (Transfermarkt).
The England under-21 is technically gifted, agile, energetic and has bundles of stamina. In other words, he would be absolutely ideal for West Ham. Our financial situation means that loan deals will be more likely than permanent ones this month.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer raved about the young Red Devils ace earlier this month, as quoted by Planet Football:
“I think Brandon has been absolutely outstanding since he came in. Every challenge he has tackled head on. He’s only 19 and he’s made 12 starts and he reminds me so much of the mentality of Gary Neville.”
So if we manage to sign either Benrahma or Dawson on a permanent deal this month, bringing Man United ace Williams to the London Stadium would be a very smart move from the Hammers.
Especially with Arthur Masuaku not set to return for another six weeks or so.
