West Ham United are reportedly still in the race to sign Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay this summer.

According to Independent journalist Miguel Delaney via the Reading the Game newsletter (3:31pm, August 25, 2023), Manchester United’s Scott McTominay is still very much on the West Ham radar in the summer transfer window.

The East London outfit were strongly linked with a move to sign the 26-year-old Man United man earlier this summer.

Since then though, Hammers boss David Moyes has signed Edson Alvarez and James Ward-Prowse.

In spite of that, the Scot could still try to bring his countryman to the London Stadium from Old Trafford it seems…

The 41-capped Scotland international is still being targeted by the Hammers according to Miguel Delaney.

I actually think that McTominay would be an exceptional signing for West Ham. However, there’s surely just nowhere for him to fit in after the arrivals of Ward-Prowse and Alvarez.

If anything, Moyes should be looking for a new left-back, a centre-forward and maybe another winger before the transfer window closes.

It has been a great window for the Hammers already, and I have no doubts that it will get even better over the next few days.

However, the Manchester United man won’t be arriving at the London Stadium this summer in my opinion.

As much as Scott McTominay would be a strong addition to the Scot’s ranks at West Ham, the Hammers boss quite simply doesn’t need him anymore.
