View: West Ham player faces brutal Moyes axe against Arsenal; transfer upgrade needs to be arranged

BBC pundit denigrates Moyes as the West Ham decision makes him the worst enemy.

West Ham United will forfeit £35 million. After Fabrizio Romano provides a transfer update, Manuel Locatelli moves.

David Moyes, the manager of West Ham United, did an excellent job bolstering his team during the summer transfer window.

Given that club captain Declan Rice had left for rival Premier League team Arsenal, it appeared that the next few months would be challenging.

However, James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez, who came from Southampton and Ajax, respectively, filled the void he left in the midfield.

According to TuttoJuve (27 October), the Hammers were prepared to pay Juventus £34.8 million for the services of Manuel Locatelli, who was available for transfer from West Ham.

However, according to a recent update from transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, that possible move is now off the table. On November 1, the journalist revealed on his personal Twitter account that Locatelli will sign a new contract with Juventus that will last until 2028.

For that reason, Moyes can promptly set it aside. If the manager wants to strengthen his midfield options even more, he needs to look elsewhere.

Arrivals for summer While Ward-Prowse and Alvarez got off to a quick start at the London Stadium, the early momentum they gave the Hammers has faded in recent weeks.

The East London team has now dropped its last three games overall and hasn’t won in its last four games.

The Hammers might benefit from a few new faces during the January transfer window, but Juventus and Italian star Locatelli is not likely to be heading to the London Stadium anytime soon.
