West Ham United are quite active in this transfer window. After signing Darren Randolph, they are now moving towards midfield, as it looks like they will be trying to sign a player from their rival club Chelsea. According to the Mirror, the Hammers are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley on loan.
West Ham just recently appointed David Moyes as their new manager and it looks like he is eager to sign players he used to work with. First it was Marouane Fellaini West Ham were linked with, now it is Barkley. The Scottish manager knows Barkley very well as he was the one handing him his senior debut when he was 16 years old, back at Everton in 2011.
Now, Moyes is keen to improve his midfield options and England international has not been playing much under Frank Lampard. Also, West Ham missed out on Gedson Fernandes who moved to Tottenham, thus leaving Hammers with less options.
