It is suggested that Hammers boss David Moyes is eyeing the 30-year-old Cottagers ace as a potential alternative to Jesse Lingard should we fail to land the 28-year-old Manchester United star this summer.
The Scot’s main priority is to make Lingard’s loan deal a permanent one.
As things stand, however, it doubtful as to whether the West Ham boss will be able to make that happen.
West Ham eyeing Tom Cairney as Lingard alternative
Claret and Hugh claims that Moyes could go back in for the 30-year-old attacking midfielder this summer.
And he could be available for around £10 million according to C&H.
The Fulham ace endured an injury hit campaign last season with just 10 Premier League appearances to his name.
The Scotland international is a decent performer, however, and has 53 goals and 55 assists in 389 career games to his name (Transfermarkt).
Cairney is a very intelligent footballer. He’s great in possession and his creative threat would add so much to the Hammers’ attacking play.
Let’s be honest though. He’s not in the same league as Lingard.

And West Ham signing Tom Cairney instead of Jesse this summer would be incredibly disappointing. Especially considering his age and alleged £10 million valuation.
