‘Ward-Prowse or McTominay’ – David Moyes and West Ham divided over recruitment policy

As the summer transfer window heats up, it seems there is a difference of opinion between West Ham manager David Moyes and the club’s hierarchy regarding their recruitment policy. As relays the TBR, recent reports suggest that the two parties are not entirely aligned on certain potential signings, including Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse.

On the Ranks FC Ultras Podcast, Dean Jones shed light on the ongoing situation at West Ham. According to Jones, there are a few players that Moyes has targeted for the squad, but the club’s higher-ups remain uncertain about these choices. Among those players is the 28-year-old Southampton midfielder, James Ward-Prowse.

While Moyes is reportedly keen on having Ward-Prowse don the claret and blue at the London Stadium, West Ham’s management appears to be hesitant about the move. This lack of consensus could pose a challenge for Moyes in the pursuit of his desired targets.

Jones elaborated on the matter, stating, “David Moyes does have targets that he wants, but the club and their new structuring aren’t entirely sure. James Ward-Prowse and Scott McTominay are players David Moyes definitely wants, but there’s an argument that if West Ham will play a certain style, those players don’t fit the style they want to eventually get to.”

The contrasting views within the club’s decision-making process may lead to further discussions and evaluations of the potential signings. As West Ham aims to strengthen its squad ahead of the upcoming season, it remains to be seen how this situation unfolds and if Moyes will be able to secure the players he believes will enhance the team’s performance.
