West Ham United are checking out Manchester United defender Phil Jones ahead of the summer transfer window according to a report from Eurosport.
Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a busy man in the transfer market this summer.
West Ham are in desperate need of a top class centre-forward, and energetic midfielder and an established left-back.
It has been suggested that we need another central defender as well with Fabian Balbuena facing an uncertain future at the London Stadium.
West Ham eyeing Phil Jones swoop?
Eurosport reckon that the Hammers are contemplating a move to sign the 29-year-old Man United centre-back.
All we can say is come on Moysie! You could and should be doing a lot better than a washed up, injury prone defender who hasn’t had a decent season for at least three or four years.
Since joining Manchester United from Blackburn Rovers for around £17 million in 2011 (BBC), Jones has really struggled to live up to his reputation and potential.
On his day, he is a decent defender. He’s versatile as well.
It is claimed that Jones will be looking for at least £120k-a-week as well (Eurosport).
If West Ham are to sign a centre-back this summer, we should be looking at young players with huge potential.
The Hammers need to be smart in their summer business.
Gone are the days when we give ageing has-beens one last big deal.
And a move to sign Phil Jones would be a big backwards step for West Ham.
