West Ham want to sign Real Madrid youngster Miguel Gutierrez on loan according to a report from The Daily Star.
Hammers boss David Moyes is still yet to make a senior signing this summer.
The Scot has brought a few talented youngsters to the London Stadium over the past couple of months, however.
Targeting talented young players who have been released by some of the biggest clubs in England is clearly strategy for Moyes and West Ham.
And another talented youngster is now allegedly on the Hammers’ radar.
West Ham chasing Miguel Gutierrez
The Daily Star reckons that the 19-year-old left-back is transfer target for David Moyes this summer.
And what a signing he would be for West Ham.
The young Spaniard is highly rated at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Gutierrez has only made six senior appearances for Los Blancos. When he has played, however, he has really impressed.
The teenager is technically gifted and has energy and athleticism in abundance.
The Real Madrid starlet may well find it hard to acclimatise to the intensity of the Premier League. Considering the fact that it would be a loan deal to start off, however, there will be minimal risk involved for West Ham.
West Ham boss David Moyes has so many areas of his squad in urgent need of attention. And with limited funds available to the Scot, signing Gutierrez on loan makes perfect sense this summer.
