The Hammers close in on their first signings of the summer
West Ham are closing in on their first signing of the summer transfer window as Nottingham Forest mull over a bid of £10million attacking right back Matty Cash.
Forest value him at around £15million but David Moyes’ side aren playing hard ball, meaning Forest will have to sell him for a lower fee if they want to “cash” in on him. No pun intended.
Twenty three year old Cash could give more attacking options than Ryan Fredericks who some see as symptomatic of the problems West Ham have attacking down the right side – ranking as the third-worst side for attacks on the right flank in the Premier League this season.
And the fullback could be the first of several sought after players to come to the London Stadium with West Ham jockeying with Aston Villa for the signature of Brentford super striker Ollie Watkins.
