West Ham have two Liverpool players on our transfer radar ahead of the January window

West Ham have two Liverpool players on our radar ahead of the January transfer window according to a report from The Sun.

Liverpool allegedly have two defenders who are attracting Hammers boss David Moyes.

The Scot is said to be on the look-out for a new centre-back after losing Angelo Ogbonna for the rest of the season.

West Ham’s main defensive target in January is James Tarkowski according to The Sun.

The Hammers are allegedly prepared to pay around £7 million for the Burnley centre-back.

Moyes apparently has some alternative options up his sleeve, however.

West Ham have two Liverpool players on transfer radar ahead of January window

According to a report from The Sun, West Ham are eyeing potential moves to sign Liverpool duo Ben Davies and/or Nat Phillips in January.

Davies, 26, joined the Reds from Preston North End in a shock £1.6 million move in January (Sky Sports).

Meanwhile, Phillips, 24, was given his chance at Anfield by Jurgen Klopp last season when Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all suffered long-term injuries.

We believe that Phillips would be a very strong signing for West Ham. The Hammers fans are well aware of just how good he is after he shackled Michail Antonio at the London Stadium and Sebastien Haller at Anfield last year.

He’s just 24 as well. He is at the right age and possesses exactly the kind of attributes David Moyes looks for in a player.

However, Davies wouldn’t be a great addition to the West Ham squad in our opinion.

He has hardly played for Liverpool under Klopp and is currently out on loan in the Championship with Sheffield United.

The 26-year-old doesn’t really fit the physical profile that West Ham are after for a centre-back.

Davies does have one stand-out natural attribute that Moyes may be attracted to though – the fact that he’s left footed.

With Ogbonna out for at least the rest of the season, signing a left-sided centre-back may be a wise move from the Hammers. We could and should be targeting a lot higher quality defender than the Liverpool man though.

Phillips would be the one to take us to another level in our opinion. The Mirror reckon he’s available for just £12 million.

That is absolutely peanuts in the modern game. And Phillips arriving at the London Stadium would be a signing that we would surely all be behind.
