Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a very busy man in the January transfer window.

West Ham boss Moyes after January central midfield reinforcement?

There are claims from Aguilas Monumental, however, that West Ham United’s Head of Recruitment Rob Newman has identified the Club America midfielder as a potential signing for Moyes.
