Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth names four stars West Ham want to sign in fresh transfer update

West Ham are yet to sign a single player in the summer transfer window.

The Hammers are one of only three Premier League clubs yet to enter the market.

West Ham have been linked with a plethora of players over the last few months and can now finally start spending after the arrival of the first tranche of £33.3m from Arsenal for Declan Rice.

David Moyes has this weekend declared his ‘full focus’ is now on bringing players i

While £33.3m may not sound a huge amount of money, it will actually equate to a summer transfer budget of around £133m for West Ham – here’s how.

West Ham are reportedly looking to sign two midfielders to replace Rice, an attacking player and a centre-back as a bare minimum.

And it seems work on the latter is advancing with West Ham’s shortlist narrowing.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has named four stars West Ham want to sign in a fresh transfer update.

The transfer reporter has today claimed West Ham are targeting a specific quartet of centre-backs.

Sheth has re-affirmed West Ham’s long-rumoured interest in Man United outcast Harry Maguire.

And he says Torino’s Perr Schuurs, Bayer Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah and Real Betis’ Luiz Felipe are the other players on West Ham’s radar.

‘Decision will effectively rest with the player’

“It is thought the club are exploring the option of both a loan and a permanent deal for the 30-year-old England international (Maguire)…” Sheth said on Sky Sports.

“(Man) United manager Erik ten Hag has always maintained any decision will effectively rest with the player, who is contracted to until the summer of 2025…

“Other options West Ham are looking at are Torino’s Perr Schuurs, Bayer Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah and Luiz Felipe from Real Betis.”

Maguire looks least likely but other three targets all plausible

West Ham fans who have been following the window thus far will be aware of links to each of those players.

From the outside looking in, Maguire seems the least likely to arrive given his alleged previous reluctance to entertain a move to the London Stadium and high wages.

So it would seem a loan would be the best the Hammers could hope for.

Deals for the other three are all plausible, though.

West Ham have Nikola Vlasic as a makeweight in any deal with Torino for Schuurs.

New technical director Tim Steidten has close ties with Tah and his former club Leverkusen.

And ex Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is Felipe’s manager at Betis meaning channels of communication would not be an issue there either.
