West Ham now want to sign £43m Premier League captain who tore them apart this season

West Ham United are now said to be monitoring a Premier League captain as they look to continue their impressive summer spending.

 

Eventually David Moyes and Tim Steidten proved to be a productive duo last summer, and the club spent the Declan Rice money incredibly well.

 

 

James Ward-Prowse is also now an important member of the squad, with Konstantinos Mavropanos often featuring in Moyes’ strongest eleven too.

 

 

Therefore, there’s definitely reason to believe the club could enjoy another successful summer, even if the jury is still out on a move for Kalvin Phillips.

 

Aside from signing a new striker, there doesn’t necessarily seem to be any glaring holes in West Ham’s squad right now, even if a new defender or two might now improve things.

 

But it seems one potential opportunity could prove too good to turn down, with talkSPORT now reporting that West Ham could eventually move for Morgan Gibbs-White.

 

 

West Ham considering move for Forest captain Morgan Gibbs-White this summer

Forest could be forced to sell a star player in order to raise funds in the near future to avoid another profit and sustainability breach, and their captain may be a candidate.

 

According to this report, Gibbs-White features on a list of possible replacements for Manchester City target Lucas Paqueta.

 

 

West Ham fans would be loath to lose their key player in successive seasons, but a move for the £43m-midfielder seems like a sensible plan if that does transpire to be the case.

 

 

Of course, Gibbs-White was outstanding in Forest’s 2-0 win over West Ham last month, a 24-year-old who still has plenty of room to improve, too.

 

West Ham could certainly do worse this summer, and the Forest captain would represent a similarly versatile option to Paqueta.

 

Presuming he’s still in charge, and there’s currently no reason to believe he won’t be, David Moyes would certainly be able to seamlessly fit Gibbs-White into his side, another player who could add to the leadership team as well.

 

All that being said, one current West Ham player has recently admitted that he’s getting booked far too often this season.
