David Moyes wants to bring in-form NUFC player to West Ham – & could make £5m bid – Report

David Moyes is ‘interested’ in bringing Javier Manquillo to West Ham this month, according to the Northern Echo.

The Hammers have been linked with a move for the Spaniard in recent weeks, and it’s now been reported that Moyes is an admirer of the in-form full-back, having signed him for Sunderland back in August 2016.

Not only that, West Ham’s need for defensive cover has risen over the past few days, with first choice right-back Ryan Fredericks expected to miss up to 2 months after picking up a hamstring injury in their FA Cup clash with Gillingham on Sunday.

This comes a few days on from The Athletic’s David Ornstein confirming Manquillo was on West Ham’s radar, and the Echo now claim a £5m bid could be on its way.

He’s set to be missing for a few weeks himself after limping off in our 0-3 defeat to Leicester last week, but, with him out of contract this summer as things stand and us yet to offer him a new deal, he may well be assessing his options this month.

Time to reward his impress form with a new deal – or would you cash in while we can?

  1. Year of the Magpie:
    He’s been playing really well and worth a lot more than that. Who could we replace him with for that kind of money?

    Very true. 25 and arguably our best right-back.

    My fear is we don’t give him a new deal and cash in while we can (thinking it’s fine because we have Yedlin and Krafth).
