West Ham boss David Moyes wants to sign a defender before the club’s second game of the season against Arsenal.
Football.London reports that the Hammers chief is desperate to sign a left-back while he is also keen to acquire a new central defender as the transfer window goes on.
The Hammers have yet to sign a defender this summer, but CandH understands it is an area of priority.
The club are set to sanction the sale of Grady Diangana in this window, allowing him to move to West Brom for a fee of around £18m, and that money will be reinvested as the club look to strengthen the squad.
Moyes has reportedly told the club that a new signing in defence is needed in the next few weeks, with the Hammers to play Arsenal on September 20th.
It appears that game could end up being the debut of a new defender if Moyes has his way; there’s nothing like a gentle start.
