According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United have identified Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey as a potential transfer target this summer.

However, it would be fair to say that the majority of the Hammers fans are against their club moving for the 27-year-old.
Shelvey only made 18 appearances for Newcastle during the 2018-19 season.
The midfielder will see his contract at St James’ Park expire in little over two years, meanwhile, and according to ExWHUemployee, Shelvey is a target for West Ham.
The six-time England international struggled with injury last term and missed 22 of his team’s 38 Premier League matches.
There is no question that the former Charlton Athletic youngster is a talent. However, his career appears to have stalled over the last 12 months or so.
The West Ham fans have been on social media offering their views on his potential arrival.
And it would be fair to say that not too many want their club to move for the Romford-born midfielder – a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

No offence to Jonjo but he would be an underwhelming signing.

So last summer was 1 step forward, this summer’s plan is to take 2 steps back.

We have room in the treatment room, not convinced Shelvey is a forward step at all.
