West Ham United are absolutely flying under David Moyes.

After a sixth placed finish last term, the Hammers currently sit third in the Premier League and are going strong in the League Cup and Europa League.

Moyes, who rejoined the Irons in December 2019, has guided the side to notable wins over Manchester United, Manchester City (League Cup), Tottenham and, most recently, Liverpool this season.

And now it appears that the East London side are also planning to get one over Spurs off the field as, according to reports from Calciomercato.it, West Ham are plotting a move for Weston McKennie.

The Juventus midfielder has played 59 times for the Serie A giants, scoring eight times, since a move from Schalke in 2020.

McKennie has played 29 times for United States.

McKennie, 23, has also been linked with a transfer to Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, but it’s claimed that the Hammers have entered the race and are ‘not afraid’ to meet the versatile star’s £25 million asking price.

If West Ham are able to ‘beat’ their London rivals to the signature of the American it would be another sign as to the club’s progress over the past two years.

They were in danger of relegation when Moyes was appointed but, after keeping them up, he’s now transformed them into a team looking more than comfortable competing at the top end of the table.

Additionally, if these reports are to be believed, it seems the Irons are also competing higher up the ladder when it comes to the transfer market.
