Report: West Ham pushing hard to wrap up deal to sign ‘lightning quick’ Leicester forward Harvey Barnes

West Ham United is now working very hard to finalize a deal to recruit Harvey Barnes from Leicester City.

The Guardian reported that West Ham wanted to complete the signing of Harvey Barnes from Leicester as soon as possible.

The Scot wants to bolster his attacking lineups urgently because the front line needs more speed and force. And it appears that Moyes is after Barnes in particular.

According to The Guardian, David Moyes will have the full support of the Hammers board this summer, with a drive to recruit the Foxes star at the top of the Scot’s list of priorities.

Described as a lightning fast winger, the 25-year-old has absolutely everything that the Hammers currently lack, with pace and power to burn.

Barnes is direct in the way that he plays and always has his opposing full-back on the back foot. The Leicester ace is absolutely rapid, possesses exceptional technique and is strong with both feet. The 25-year-old bagged 13 goals in 34 Premier League games for Leicester this season – a fantastic return (Transfermarkt).

Harvey Barnes can play anywhere along the front-line, and that kind of versatility will undoubtedly really appeal to West Ham boss David Moyes. It makes his £50 million price-tag seem like better value as well.

I think that Barnes could take us to a whole new level entirely if he does move to the London Stadium. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Moyes manages to get this one done.
