West Ham ‘are definitely interested’ in signing £75M valued midfielder


West Ham are definitely interested in trying to sign Southampton star James Ward-Prowse – fans have been told

This Hammers side had a wonderful campaign under David Moyes last season and kept up their challenge for a Champions League spit right until the very last weeks of the season – but ultimately missed out

Moyes knows that he will need to add a number of players to the squad that will make a real difference – and that has now led to speculation that the Hammers are interested in a possible deal for Ward-Prowse

He notched up 11 goals and eight assists in 42 league and cup appearances last term despite the fact that the Saints had an up and down season under Ralph Hasenhuttl – and he is tipped to leave the Saints this summer

And now – amid all the speculation – The Hammers fans have been told that there is interest from the West Ham board to sign JWP – but a deal for the midfielder – now worth £75M – could be a tricky one

Journalist Dean Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “There is definite interest in James Ward-Prowse, but it’s not particularly likely.

“Saints just don’t want to let this guy go and, when that’s the case, you’ve got to pay over the odds to get them out of that club. You don’t normally see West Ham actually doing that.

“You hear of them entertaining the idea and you hear of them chasing these players, but then they suddenly look elsewhere and sign somebody else for a third of the price.

“There’s no doubt that they like James Ward-Prowse, but I’m not sure that, at this moment in time, they see it as a signing that they’re getting excited about.”

There is no doubt that Ward-Prowse has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons and has been linked with many moves, but his loyalty to the Saints has kept him at the club

If The Hammers do decide to bring in a new midfielder at the end of the season, then Ward-Prowse is definitely a man that fans would like to see signed, there are not many people out there that believe he is not good enough for one of the big clubs

However – can we see them paying £75m for the player? No we cannot
