Liverpool slot move raises Hammers hopes

Liverpool’s decision to appoint Arne Slot as Jurgen Klopp’s successor at Anfield has left the door slightly ajar for Ruben Amorim to join West Ham… but only just.

Slot has emerged as the frontrunner for the Liverpool job, with his track record of developing young talent, achieving success on a relatively modest budget, garnering European experience, and employing a style of play that aligns well with Klopp’s, all appealing to the Merseyside club.

I have suspected for the past few days that Amorim’s flight to London was orchestrated by his agents in an attempt to garner interest from Liverpool. However, with the Anfield club apparently out of the race to sign the Sporting coach, there remains a chance for him to join West Ham.

Arne Slot could replace David Moyes at West Ham

Liverpool’s move for Arne could open a slot in the door for Amorim

That chance remains incredibly slim, though, with his release clause still a major stumbling block, even if he did wish to join West Ham. The Hammers’ board denies any meeting with Amorim and is adamant that the private jet he supposedly took to London was not chartered by West Ham United.

The club’s official stance remains that David Moyes’ position will be assessed at the end of the season. The biggest irony of all is that Feyenoord’s Slot was higher on the Hammers wanted list than Amorim with West Ham having followed his carer closely for the past 12 months.
