With the January transfer window edging closer, speculation is starting to do the rounds.
West Ham United brought in nine new faces in the summer following Manuel Pellegrini’s arrival as manager.
It is unclear how much business the East London outfit intend to do, but rumours are rumbling that they might try to re-sign Victor Moses.
According to club insider ExWHUemployee, the Hammers may enquire about a possible move for the winger following the news that Andriy Yarmolenko is set to be sidelined for six months.
The claim was made during a taping of The West Ham Way show via PhoenixFM and it has sparked a response from supporters.
Moses was influential during Antonio Conte’s reign at Chelsea as he thrived in the wing-back role.

However, the Nigerian is now deemed surplus to requirements due to the fact that new manager Maurizio Sarri does not play the same system.
Moses already has experience playing for West Ham having spent the 2015-16 season on loan at the London club.
During that time, Moses made 26 appearances, scoring two goals and registering two assists.
For Chelsea, the winger has had 127 outings, and in that time has netted 18 goals and bagged 13 assists.
On Twitter, West Ham fans reacted to the reports, and the general feeling is one of positivity.
Underated in season 15/16.
Payet was the hero…but this boy had a great season for us.

If we were still using the 5 at the back, then yes. Absolutely not to play RW.

Always thought we should have made a move for him after his loan spell with us. Excellent player that would fit well with Pelligrini’s attacking mentality
