West Ham: David Moyes could make another two signings

Journalist Alex Crook has revealed an exciting West Ham United update which will give manager David Moyes a real boost heading into the last two weeks of the transfer window.

What’s the news?

The talkSPORT correspondent was referring to reports that the Irons are eyeing up two more signings, with Crook saying: “West Ham are going to be busy in the next couple of weeks, the owners are committed this summer to trying to give David Moyes all the resources to have another tilt at European football.

“We know they are interested in Hans Vanaken, a central midfielder currently playing for Club Brugge in Belgium. They are still looking at a potential left-back as well. West Ham’s business is far from done.”

Boost for Moyes

This update from Crook will surely give Moyes and the West Ham faithful a spring in their step heading to the last fortnight of the transfer window.

They need to add more depth to the midfield and attacking areas, where they are discernibly short on options, so a move for Vanaken makes sense. He has scored 102 goals and registered 73 assists during his seven seasons at Club Brugge, an excellent return from the attacking midfielder.

His 15 goals last term would have enabled him to finish second in the West Ham scoring charts, just behind Jarrod Bowen (18), and his goalscoring capabilities could be what Moyes requires.

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

A potential left-back signing also seems to be on the cards and this is an area which could do with some rejuvenation at the London Stadium. Aaron Cresswell will be 33 in December, and it’s time that Moyes brought in someone new to boost his team’s defence on that flank.

Crook has also stated that West Ham are interested in Burnley left-back Charlie Taylor, who could be an upgrade on Cresswell.

The 28-year-old made 1.9 interceptions, 1.5 tackles and 2.3 clearances per Premier League match last season compared to Cresswell’s 1.1 interceptions, 0.9 tackles, and 2.1 clearances per game in the same division.

Will West Ham finish in the European places this season?

Moyes might be able to prise Taylor from Burnley for a moderate fee due to the club’s relegation last season, and it’s a move which could work wonders for his team.

With not long left to go until the transfer window slams shut, the excitement over who Moyes will sign will be bubbling right up until the deadline, particularly after this encouraging claim from Crook.

If West Ham can achieve both, or even one, of those reported transfer missions, it would come as a significant boost for the manager ahead of another campaign with European commitments.
