West Ham could make a loan move for Arsenal ace Ainsley Maitland-Niles in January according to claims from ExWHUemployee.

Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a very busy man in the transfer market next month and we think that the Arsenal man would be a great addition.

Moyes needs to strengthen his West Ham squad in pretty much every department in the January transfer window. Obviously that won’t be possible, so the Scot will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.

Moyes’s priorities should be to sign a top-class striker and an established centre-back in January. It could be argued that we need to bolster at left full-back and central midfield as well.

The Scot clearly doesn’t trust Arthur Masuaku or Alex Kral. And it seems as though the 58-year-old could kill two birds with one stone.

ExWHUemployee claims that the 23-year-old Gunners ace is a potential January loan target for the Hammers.

We think that the Arsenal ace would be a very solid addition for West Ham.

Maitland-Niles has energy, pace and power in abundance. He embodies everything that the modern day player needs to succeed.

He would provide stiff competition for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in the middle of the park at the London Stadium.

The 24-year-old could also cover both full-back positions.

Maitland-Niles could be available for just £20 million this summer according to the Daily Mail. It appears as though West Ham could try to sign him on loan, however.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is prepared to let the London-born ace leave the Emirates in January according to The Express.

So this one really shouldn’t be too difficult to get done.

And if Moyes manages to bring the versatile Arsenal ace to the London Stadium, it would be a fantastic piece of January business for West Ham.
