West Ham eye swoop for Europa League winner as David Moyes looks ahead to January

Latest news on the transfer front involving West Ham.

West Ham are reportedly keen on Eintracht Frankfurt’s Djibril Sow. The midfielder is being linked with a move to England ahead of the January transfer window.

According to a report by Sport1, the Hammers ‘want’ to lure him to the London Stadum this winter as they hunt for potential winter signings. However, they aren’t the only Premier League side in the frame with Aston Villa also credited with an interest, whilst Nottingham Forest are believed to have made an offer for him over the summer.

Sow, 25, has been away with the Switzerland squad at the World Cup in Qatar and played in all four of their matches in the tournament. His country were knocked out in the Round of 16 by Portugal.

He has appeared to have caught the eye though and Frankfurt could now face a battle to keep hold of him in the future. The 25-year-old has played for the Bundelsiga outfit since 2019 and has become a key player, helping them win the Europa League earlier this year.

Prior to his switch to Germany, Sow played in his native Switzerland for FC Zurich and Young Boys. He is under contract at the Waldstadion until 2024 so his side are under no pressure to cash in just yet.

West Ham could see him as someone to add more competition and depth in the middle of the park. They will have to face competition if they were to get him though with Aston Villa linked too.
