West Ham want to sign Nottingham Forest centre-back Joe Worrall according to a report from The Sun.

Hammers boss David Moyes may well be keen to bolster his centre-back ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Fabian Balbuena is set to leave West Ham whilst Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are 33 and 31 respectively.

Meanwhile, the jury is still out on Issa Diop.

The Hammers do have some excellent young central defenders coming through the ranks, including the likes of Aji Alese, Jamal Baptiste and Frederik Alves.

It could be argued that none of those players are ready for regular action at the very highest level, however.

West Ham want Joe Worrall

The Hammers have actually made an enquiry for the Nottingham Forest defender according to a report from The Sun.

The 24-year-old could be available for around £10 million this summer (The Sun).

And we think that would be great value for West Ham.

The towering centre-back is a real warrior and he is exactly the kind of centre-back David Moyes should be looking to sign.

In 31 Championship outings this season, Worrall has averaged 0.7 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 4.2 clearances and 0.9 blocks per game. He has also won an average of 2.2 aerial duals per match during those appearances (Who Scored).

Standing at 6ft 4in tall, Worrall is a man mountain of a centre-back. He is big, strong and very dominant in the air.

£10 million sounds like an absolute bargain to us.
