C&H reckon that the 24-year-old defender could be picked up for just £8 million before the start of next season.

With Fabian Balbuena having been released this summer, it will be important for Moyes to bring an established centre-back to the London Stadium.

With money tight in East London, Moyes will be on the look-out for bargains.

West Ham could sign Joe Worrall for just £8 million

Claret and Hugh claim that they’ve been told that David Moyes is keen to sign the 24-year-old Forest centre-back.

We think that Worrall would be a great signing for the Hammers.

 

Especially for the reported fee of just £8 million! C&H have been way off in their valuations of players in the past, however.

So it would not surprise us if we had to pay more for Worrall!

The towering centre-back is a real warrior and he is exactly the kind of centre-back David Moyes should be looking to sign.

In 31 Championship outings this season, Worrall has averaged 0.7 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 4.2 clearances and 0.9 blocks per game. He has also won an average of 2.2 aerial duals per match during those appearances (Who Scored).

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Worrall is an absolute man mountain of a centre-back. He is big, strong and very dominant in the air.
