West Ham might have just been given a late chance to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United on transfer deadline day.

That’s because the 24-year-old right-back was omitted from the Manchester United squad for their clash with Leicester at the King Power Stadium tonight.

Reports emerged earlier that West Ham boss David Moyes made an approach to bring Wan-Bissaka to the London Stadium on deadline day.

That approach was rejected by Man United.

It seemed as though the Hammers’ hopes of signing the 24-year-old were over. His omission from the Manchester United squad tonight certainly raised some eyebrows though…

Door could still be open for West Ham to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Whether it’s too late on in the window for the Hammers to sign the Man United defender remains to be seen.

We believe that Moyes should have a crack at prising him away from Old Trafford though.

He joined Manchester United three years ago from Crystal Palace for around £50 million (Independent).

Wan-Bissaka possesses blistering pace. And that recovery speed would have enabled us to push further up the pitch, which ties in perfectly with Moyes saying that he wants his team to become more of a possession based side.

If you are to do that, you need real recovery pace at the back and AWB possesses that in abundance.

The Manchester United right-back is an exceptional defender and is one of the very best tacklers around.

Manchester United were allegedly demanding around £25 million for Wan-Bissaka throughout the summer transfer window (Si).

Whether those demands have changed on deadline day is unclear.

We really think that David Moyes should make one final attempt to bring Aaron Wan-Bissaka to West Ham before tonight’s 11pm deadline though.

Especially after he was omitted from the Manchester United starting XI by Erik ten Hag against Leicester tonight.
