West Ham United allegedly have no interest whatsoever in signing Everton owned striker Moise Kean in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to Hammers insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that the rumours regarding a potential move to the London Stadium for Kean are, and quote, ‘made up’.
It was Tuttosport who claimed earlier this week that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring the 22-year-old Everton-owned hitman to East London in the summer.
It is very clear to see that the Scot’s number one priority is to sign a proven goalscorer before the start of next season.
So it was no surprise to see the Hammers linked with a move to sign Moise Kean in the summer.
The 22-year-old is midway through a two-year loan deal with Juventus. The Turin giants have an obligation to buy the Italy international at the end of next season for €28 million (£24 million) according to Tuttosport.
However, Juventus are allegedly ready to trigger that obligation one year early and sign him permanently this summer before moving him on once again, having decided that he is not a part of their future plans.
It appears as though he won’t be coming to the London Stadium though…
West Ham insider provides Moise Kean summer transfer update
Claret and Hugh claims that the Hammers have ‘no interest’ in signing the Italy international this summer.
If that is indeed the case, and West Ham are not just holding their cards close to their chest, then we think that it will be a disappointment if we miss out on Kean.
We believe that the Italian ace would have been a very good signing for the Hammers.
Kean possesses real pace and seems to be tailor made for this West Ham team.
He has been described as a sensational talent by talkSPORT.
Moyes is obviously looking elsewhere for a striker this summer though. And the Scot had better get it 100% right, if we are to make genuine progress next term.
Perhaps that’s why Moyes doesn’t want to bring Kean to the London Stadium this summer. In all fairness, it would be a very risky transfer move for the club.
