It has been claimed that West Ham have made moves to try and bring Roma boss Jose Mourinho back to the Premier League.

Although The Scot celebrated three years in charge in his second spell with the club this month – there is alot of rumours about his future

The Hammers have one of the very best squads in the Premier League but have Been struggling this season and are now in a relegation battle that no-one could have seen at the start of the campaign.

Their last outing ended in a shocking 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton. It will have done little to convince fans that the players are working hard for Moyes, or that they are fully prepared for the relegation scrap.

Mourinho is currently the manager of AS Roma, who are sitting behind second-placed Inter after winning the Europa Conference League last season, but he always wants the chance to manage in the Premier League.

As per Italian source La Roma 24, the West Ham board have taken steps to try and replace the Scot.

Pundit Darren Bent recently claimed that he could see Mourinho making a move to replace Moyes at West Ham: “I would (be stunned if Mourinho returned to Chelsea for a third time),” said Bent. “He was magnificent the first time, brilliant the second time and won the league again, then the wheels fell off and it didn’t work.

“You can’t mock what he’s done, in terms of being a football manager. He is outstanding. One of the very best. His Premier League record is incredible, at all clubs. He’s had 362 games as a manager, he’s won 217, drew 84 and he’s only lost 61. That’s frightening.

“At the top end of the Premier League table, it’s not just about winning trophies now. I think fans want to see a certain style. 

“Would they (Palace) swap Vieira for him? I don’t know. Palace fans probably would. You look at teams like Brentford, they’re not swapping Thomas Frank for him. De Zerbi at Brighton, now swapping him. 

“I think so (to West Ham), but then would Mourinho go to West Ham?! Could he go in there, get results and not spend? Chelsea would rather replace Potter with a Tuchel rather than a Jose. No, I wouldn’t swap Arteta (for Jose).”
