West Ham are reportedly keen on Roma right-back Bryan Reynolds. The USA international has become the latest player to be linked with a summer switch to the London Stadium.
According to Tom Bogert in The Athletic, the Hammers are among the clubs ‘interested’ in landing the defender. The report adds that the player is ‘expected’ to leave his current club at the end of the season.
West Ham may have to face competition from the Championship to land the youngster though. Italian news outlet CalcioMercato have reported that Hull City, Swansea City and Watford are also in the frame for his signature and they would all be able to offer him more guarenteed game time.
Roma snapped him up in 2021 from FC Dallas and he has since played eight times for the Italian giants, as well as having loan spell aways at Kortrijk and most recently Westerlo to gain experience. At the age of 21, he would be a decent long-term addition for whoever wins the race to get him.
West Ham will be after some reinforcements to freshen up their ranks under David Moyes. They are next in action this weekend away to relegation threatened Leicester City.
In other Hammers news, Moyes was pleased with their 3-1 win over Leeds United on Sunday. He said: “The shackles were off and (Lucas) Paquetá was fantastic. Pablo Fornals played as well as he’s played for a long time today, and Declan (Rice) plays well all the time but he played very well today as well.”
He added: “I enjoyed the goals. I was watching them go in and then I’m seeing the players trying to make goals for each other too. It was great.
“Declan tried to be unselfish and put one over for Danny [Ings]. Then there was another one and Lucas was trying to pick out Declan. You can see they’re all team players and they’re trying to make it better for each other.”
