Moyes looks to make sensational signing

By Dave Langton

James Ward-Prowse would be a sensational signing for West Ham this summer.

The Hammers are interested in doing a deal for the midfielder in this transfer window.

Any deal would be hugely expensive for the Hammers, given that he is the Southampton captain and an England international.

Ward-Prowse has scored 10 Premier League goals in 2021/22, and is a master of the fine art of set-pieces – the hammers strength under Moyes.

In 21/22, he scored four times from a free-kick, while also netting four times from a penalty.

Given that Mark Noble is leaving the club, there really is a need to bring a new penalty taker into the club, as well as one who can really threaten from a free-kick.

Given the height of our squad, too, one thing that would help enormously is the acquisition of a brilliant deliverer of corners.

Ward-Prowse can do all of those three things and is also a fine midfielder in his own right, holding the capability to get up and down the pitch and potentially compliment Declan Rice.

If West Ham can get it done, and it won’t be easy, this would be a sensational signing.

  1. James Ward Prowse is Mr Southampton, like the Mark Noble of Southampton. Not sure I can see him going anywhere else.

  2. No thanks!
    Admire him as a player, but no.

  3. If you had to look down the league and pick the best players from each club to bring in, JWP would be right at the top of my list. Put him in a team with Ollie Watkins (my Villa pick) and alongside Rice he would be awesome.

  4. If you give me a choice between him and Kalvin Phillips I would choose him every day of the week, he will add goals to the team and is a like for like replacement for Noble except better at this stage of his career, he is brilliant with dead balls which is how we score most of our goals and would allow us to have three genuine ball winning midfielders on the pitch at all times which should protect our defence and allow Moyes to rotate in those positions, we should seriously go all in for Bissouma too which would allow us to sell Rice if that big offer comes in. It would also weaken Brighton who may well be a threat in the coming years so any chance to do that should be exploited, so we may as well get Cucurella too at left back
