‘I JUST WORRY ABOUT HIM,’ SAYS CHRIS SUTTON, SAYING THAT THE £30M WEST HAM SIGNING WAS NOT MOYES’ FIRST CHOICE.

Former Premier League striker Chris Sutton does not think new West Ham signing was not David Moyes’ first choice.

West Ham recently signed James Ward-Prowse from Southampton for a fee of £30 million, but Sutton has reservations about his coming at the London Stadium.I don’t think he would’ve been David Moyes’ first choice,” the ex-Blackburn Rovers attacker remarked on It’s All Coming Up. We know how good he is from set plays, and West Ham has a lot of tall players on their roster.He’ll play in midfield alongside [Tomas] Soucek.” I don’t believe it’s a midfield with strong legs. “My only concern is that if he plays alongside Soucek, West Ham will lack legs in the middle of the park.Ward-Prowse is not the only midfielder West Ham have bought this summer, with the club also signing Ajax’s Edson Alvarez.

West Ham will benefit greatly from the signing of James Ward-Prowse.

Whether Ward-Prowse was a first-choice target for Moyes or not, the 28-year-old will contribute a lot to this West Ham team.As previously stated by Sutton, he is lethal from set-pieces, having scored 17 free-kicks in the Premier League.Ward-Prowse has spent years playing in the English Premier League, so he adds that experience as well.Overall, it appears to be a fair deal for £30 million. It will now be intriguing to see if Ward-Prowse and Alvarez can help replace the vacuum left by Declan Rice’s departure to Arsenal.

Last season, the England international captained the Hammers and was a key role for his previous club.He is no longer with the club, therefore Moyes will turn to Ward-Prowse and Alvarez to make an impact in midfield.If they do, West Ham might have a much better Premier League season this time around after finishing just six points above the relegation zone last season.
