West Ham defender Ben Johnson is on the radar of Everton ahead of the summer transfer window.

Everton could make a move to sign West Ham full-back Ben Johnson at the end of the season, according to Claret and Hugh.

Hammers boss David Moyes may well let Johnson leave this summer, with just over a year remaining on his current deal at the club.

Johnson, 23, turned down a six-and-a-half year contact offer from West Ham in the summer of 2022, so the Hammers activated a two-year extension option that they held (The Athletic).

The London-born Hammer has played only six Premier League games under Moyes since October, after a drastic downturn in form.

The West Ham full-back will be out of contract at the London Stadium in the summer of 2024, and he could be moved on in just a couple of month’s time…

Claret and Hugh reckon that it is unlikely that Johnson will be offered a new deal by the Hammers this summer, and the Toffees could make a move to sign him.

I think that selling Johnson this summer will 100% be the right decision.

Ben Johnson’s positioning is absolutely awful and it’s just so clear to see now that Vladimir Coufal is streets ahead of the 23-year-old West Ham full-back.

It might sound harsh but I just don’t think Johnson is good enough to be playing regularly for the Hammers – certainly not at Premier League level.

His fall from grace has been quite sad to see. He just seems to be a shadow of the player who burst onto the scene in East London four years ago.

If Everton come knocking for Ben Johnson in the summer transfer window, West Ham should still be able to fetch a decent fee for him.

And that would be much better than losing him for absolutely nothing when his contract runs down in 14 month’s time.
