‘Whole situation is a mess’: Reporter close to David Sullivan says one of West Ham United’s transfers has collapsed.
The Hammers have already lost Declan Rice, Manuel Lanzini and Gianluca Scamacca as well as a few youngsters.
West Ham are thought to be closing in on the signing of Edson Alvarez from Ajax. But there could be one or two more outgoings before the transfer window closes as well.
It seems as though one of those potential outgoings may well stay at the London Stadium after all though…
Reporter close to David Sullivan says one of West Ham United’s transfers has collapsed
Aaron Cresswell was one of the players being heavily linked with an exit this summer.
However, it appears as though that transfer has collapsed, with Sean Whetstone claiming that Wolves have now pulled out of a deal to sign Cresswell:
I think we should have just accepted the £3 million for the left-back.
If we are to make real progress over the next few years, Moyes needs to bring a top-class full-back in to compete with Emerson Palmieri – preferably someone with pace and youth on their side.
Hopefully we see plenty more incoming West Ham transfers between now and the end of the window.
However, moving on the deadwood could be nearly as important. And Cresswell is someone who I think needs to be sold.
