Chelsea are said to be bracing themselves for late moves from West Ham United for Ian Maatsen and Conor Gallager.

According to a report from the Evening Standard, West Ham are still targeting late moves to sign Chelsea duo Ian Maatsen and Conor Gallagher in the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Kudus and Youssef En-Nesyri are believed to be on the Scot’s radar as well. It seems as though his business is far from done.

Gallagher and Maatsen are still targets for West Ham as well…

West Ham still plotting late double signing from Chelsea this summer

The Hammers could make late moves for the 23-year-old Blues midfielder and the 21-year-old left-back this summer, according to the Evening Standard.

West Ham have already been linked with a move to sign Gallagher this summer, and the same can be said for Maatsen.

Both players would be superb additions to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.

Moyes desperately needs a pacy, energetic young left-back to provide competition and cover for Emerson Palmieri, and Maatsen would be perfect for us.

Meanwhile, Gallagher would be a viable alternative for Kudus, should a move to sign the Ajax star fail to go through.

In all fairness, I cannot see West Ham making the double signing of both Maatsen and Gallagher this summer. I reckon that the young left-back will be the mostly likely one to join us out of the two.

And if Moyes brings either of the Chelsea players to the London Stadium, I will be be more than happy.
