West Ham want to sign another midfielder after completing the purchase of Flynn Downes from Swansea City, according to a new report from the London Evening Standard.
The Irons are closing in on a deal to buy Downes from the Championship club.
But the Standard now reports that boss David Moyes is keen to add further reinforcements to his midfield as the summer transfer window rolls on.
Nayef Aguerd has already been signed from Rennes, while Alphonse Areola has come in permanently from PSG, and Downes is likely to be the third new addition.
But another midfielder is wanted, with Mark Noble retiring and Alex Kral heading back to Russia after his disastrous loan spell.
There remains interest in signing Jesse Lingard but it remains to be seen if the free agent will decide to move to the London Stadium after his Manchester United exit.
There is rival interest from the likes of Everton, Newcastle, and Spurs.
