West Ham face competition from Aston Villa for defensive duo
The Birmingham Mail claims that the Hammers are at risk of missing out on one or even both of Moyes’s centre-back targets this summer.
Villans boss Dean Smith is allegedly keen to sign Tuanzebe and or Szalai.
Losing out to Villa on the Man United and Fenerbahce defenders would be truly disastrous for the Hammers.
We have been here before.
Aston Villa beat us to the signing of Ollie Watkins last summer and managed to pip us to Emi Buendia this summer.
The West Midlands outfit are clearly a club with huge ambition.
We won’t be too hasty to jump to conclusions. West Ham may well have plenty of irons in the fire.
And we will judge the Hammers board when the summer transfer window closes. As things stand, however, Villa’s way of doing things seem to be far better and more efficient than our approach to transfers.
