West Ham United fans have been linked with a move for Isaac Hayden, per ClaretandHugh, but fans are unsure on the prospective move.
The Hammers are said to have identified the Newcastle United midfielder as a possible alternative to Andre Gomes after missing out on the Barcelona star.
Indeed, the latter, who spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Everton, has set his heart on a move to Goodison Park, per The Guardian.
Hayden, per the report, would cost around £15m if Newcastle do decide to cash in.
Indeed, manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen to add depth to the centre of the park, with the club looking to find support for Declan Rice and Mark Noble, and the 24-year-old has been identified as the best alternative to the Portugal international.
But supporters are lukewarm on the move, with Hayden having spent three years at St James’ Park, with one even claiming that the polarising figure of Pedro Obiang is a better alternative in the Irons’ XI.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!

Obiang is better – this would not make any sense at all and definitely isn’t next level

There’s got be better value for money elsewhere??

We need someone of Gomes’ calibre, if Hayden isn’t good enough for Newcastle, then he certainly isn’t for us, we should only be signing first team players, we have backup in Noble, Sanchez and Wilshere

Id rather we signed someone who would start. I don’t see who he replaces in our midfield. Perhaps Pellegrini and Husillos see something Im too blinkered to see.

I think he would be a good upgrade on Obiang ??

Solid player tbh?

Such a sidewards step. If we can’t get Gomes go for someone of that calibre! Hayden is a nothing player. I’ll be so pissed off if he’s the summer midfield addition.
