West Ham manager David Moyes is interested in signing Youssouf Fofana.

The Monaco midfielder would be an excellent replacement for Hammers target Conor Gallagher.

West Ham United are in severe need of midfield reinforcements following the departures of Declan Rice and Manuel Lanzini, and a new update on the club’s pursuit of a transfer target has emerged.West Ham are stepping up their efforts to recruit Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
According to the source, there is growing dissatisfaction in east London since coach David Moyes and director of football Tim Steidten are allegedly not on the same page when it comes to identifying players who may enhance the Hammers for next season.

According to the source, discontent is developing in east London because coach David Moyes and director of football Tim Steidten are supposedly not on the same page when it comes to finding individuals who can help the Hammers next season.West Ham’s 2023/24 Premier League season begins next Saturday with an away match against AFC Bournemouth, so getting some work done in the next few days is critical.
The Hammers sold their most prized asset, Rice, to Arsenal for a record £105 million last month, so the east Londoners are not short of cash as the summer transfer season winds down.

Indeed, Moyes’ team has been driven away from targets, with a £40 million bid for Conor Gallagher rejected and their Carlos Borges deal hijacked by Ajax earlier this week.As a result, West Ham’s signing of Fofana might be a terrific piece of business as they attempt to bolster their presence in the center of the pitch, and he may even be a better option than Gallagher.
The 24-year-old machine has been rising from strength to strength in the French league and has been one of the stand-out performers in his position over the previous year, with a speculated price tag of up to 31 million pounds.

According to FBref, Fofana is in the top 16% of midfielders in the top five European leagues for progressive passes, progressive carries, successful take-ons, and interceptions per 90 minutes, demonstrating that he is a confident ball-winner with great progression ability.When comparing Fofana’s output to Gallagher’s last season, the Monaco midfielder outperformed his positional peer in several key metrics, including pass completion (81.6% v 81.1%), goal-creating actions per 90 (0.32 v 0.17), successful take-ons (50.5% v 42.6%), percentage of dribblers tackled (51.4% v 27%), and aerial duels won (54.8% v 40.4%).
