West Ham interested in scintillating attacker, seven goals and five assists this season

West Ham United are rumoured to be interested in bringing Norwich City’s James Maddison to the London Stadium this winter, according to a report in the Mirror.

The newspaper claims that David Moyes has identified the Canaries star as someone that can bolster his Hammers midfield options as they look to build upon their season.

The 22-year-old has been impressive in the Championship so far, having made a real difference for Norwich, scoring seven goals and providing five assists.

West Ham would not be the only Premier League club to have taken a shine to the performances of Maddison, with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City all reportedly monitoring the situation.

The amount of interest in the player could make him an expensive signing during the January transfer window, with valuations of around £20million thought to be required for West Ham to lure him away from Carrow Road.

Maddison is not the only midfielder the Hammers have been looking at bringing in this winter, with the London Stadium outfit also rumoured to have an eye on Stoke City’s Joe Allen and Bournemouth’s Harry Arter, both who could be cheaper than the Norwich star.

Moyes has admitted that he will have his work cut out over the next two weeks in trying to add quality to his West Ham side, especially with the latest injury setbacks.

Andy Carroll has been ruled out for at least three months with a broken foot, whilst Manuel Lanzini has also joined him on the injury table.

The West Ham list was already lengthy with the likes of Aaron Cresswell, Jose Fonte, Winston Reid, Andre Ayew and Diafra Sakho already on it.
