Rocky Hammers road ahead

So a week gone of the Transfer window and one outwards deal done in Thilo Kehrer. Here’s how we see the requirements this winter but there is a rocky hammers road ahead:

Rocky Hammers road ahead: Kilman

West Ham Plot Defensive Shuffle:

West Ham’s leaky backline has Moyes itching for change, and Moyes has reportedly set his sights on Wolves’ rock-solid Max Kilman. But snagging him won’t be easy – Wolves value their man highly, and a hefty price tag awaits.

Aguerd’s Future Up in the Air: His costly errors and apparent unavailability for us but happy to join Morocco for Afcon have cast a shadow over his Hammers spell. If he departs, the funds could fuel Moyes’ defensive revamp.

Beyond Kilman: An Open Field: Leverkusen’s Tah (again), Forest’s Worrall, and Peterborough’s Edwards are all on the radar, offering variety in Moyes’ defensive shopping spree.

Left Wing Whispers: Bergwijn, the former Spurs flyer, is being monitored for the left flank. Clarke, a young gun from Sunderland, is another option, while the PSG hitman Ekitike remains a long-term target.

Clear-Out Considerations: Benrahma and Fornals will hopefully be on the move, with West Ham open to offers. Wolves, meanwhile, are keen on Danny Ings, eyeing a loan deal for the ex-Villa striker.

January Jitters Ahead: A busy window awaits the mighty Irons, with plenty of ins and outs in play. Finding the right balance between squad needs, player availability, and financial limitations will be critical for our second-half push.

So, buckle up Hammers fans, it’s gonna be a wild ride. Can Moyes patch up the leaky defence and add some attacking spark?
