Rio Ferdinand has suggested that West Ham United sign one player in particular from Manchester United in January.

West Ham made some really good signings in the summer after losing Declan Rice to Arsenal, and we are clearly a more well-rounded team as a result now.

However, Rio Ferdinand believes that there was another player Hammers boss David Moyes should have brought to the London Stadium.

West Ham were heavily linked with a move to sign Scott McTominay in the summer, but Manchester United’s £45 million demands were too excessive in the end.

The 26-year-old is perfect for the Hammers though according to Rio…

Rio Ferdinand has transfer advice for West Ham, says Moyes should sign £45 million star

The former Man United and England man believes McTominay should be a Hammers player now.

Ferdinand shared the transfer advice for West Ham, when speaking on the Five YouTube channel:

“If I was West Ham I would’ve bought him, definitely. McTominay is another one who is interesting, he doesn’t play for Man United but plays for his national team. The depth isn’t the same, he’s proven his worth when he’s in there and he’s doing well for Scotland.”

McTominay would have been a strong addition for the Hammers, I have no doubts about that.

However, after Moyes brought Edson Alvarez and James Ward-Prowse to the London Stadium, I’m not sure we need him anymore.

He is a very solid, proven Premier League player but I don’t really see a place for him in our team now.

Rio Ferdinand suggesting McTominay for West Ham isn’t a bad shout, but he’s just a little bit late to the party with it.
