Moyes eyes Premier League midfielder


Moyes wants McTominay

David Moyes wants to make a move for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay during this summer’s transfer window.

The 26-year-old’s future at Old Trafford remains uncertain, with the board believed to be willing to listen to offers for him during the current market.

The Hammers are close to coming to a formal agreement with Arsenal over Declan Rice and Moyes may well move in on his fellow Scot as a result.

McTominay played 39 times for Man United last season, but he only started just 10 times in the Premier League, with Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen and Fred ahead of him in the pecking order.

The Scotland international recently expressed his happiness in Manchester, but it is thought that an offer in the region of £40m would convince the Red Devils to sell him this summer.

According to The Sun, Moyes is ‘a big fan’ of McTominay and believes that he ‘ticks lots of boxes’ for the Hammers, who face the difficult task of replacing Declan Rice this summer.

Moyes may not necessarily  view McTominay as a direct replacement for Rice but believes that the Scot would be a strong addition for the Hammers, who will be back in the Europa League next season following their triumph in the Europa Conference League.

McTominay came through the youth system at Old Trafford, progressing through the various age groups before making his first-team debut in 2017.

The midfielder has featured on 209 occasions for the Manchester club, scoring 19 goals and registering five assists in the process.

McTominay has another two years left to run on his contract, meanwhile, with the option of an additional year, placing Man United in a strong position in any potential transfer talks. According to transfermarkt, he would be available for about £25M
