West Ham United started talks to sign £25m-rated Championship talent

According to the London Evening Standard, West Ham United is actively pursuing Alex Scott and has engaged in discussions with the representatives of the talented Bristol City midfielder, writes the HITC. Scott has emerged as a key target for West Ham this summer, prompting the club to initiate exploratory talks.

West Ham has reportedly held “initial talks” with Scott’s representatives as they assess the feasibility of securing a deal for the midfielder. The valuation of Scott is believed to be around £25 million. Pep Guardiola has described Scott as an “unbelievable talent,” further highlighting the interest from West Ham.

The potential transfer of Declan Rice, whose future remains uncertain, could impact West Ham’s pursuit of Scott. With Rice likely to command a substantial transfer fee, West Ham is considering various midfield options. They may need to recruit two players: a defensive midfielder capable of replicating Rice’s play-breaking abilities, and a dynamic ball carrier who can make an impact in the attacking aspects of the game.

Scott appears to be a suitable candidate for the latter role, and West Ham may view him as a rising star with immense potential for the future.
