West Ham United finally seem to be breathing a fresh life under the stewardship of David Moyes as they moved up to the 11th spot in the Premier League table after their emphatic 1-4 away win against Huddersfield Town on Saturday. The Hammers now have 25 points from 22 outings and they must be looking to keep the momentum going to finish in the top half of the table.
Moyes would be looking to make some additions in the ongoing transfer window to beef up his arsenal and as per one of the latest reports, he is willing to raid his former employers, Everton, in order to prise their prized youngster, Tom Davies, out of the Goodison Park. Davies has shown a lot of calibre so far this season and Moyes has emerged as one of his admirers.
The 19-year-old has accumulated 20 appearances in the top flight this season whilst plying his trade for the Toffees, 11 of which were starts. Besides, he also gathered valuable experience of playing in the Europa League, League Cup and FA Cup and it is clear that the Blues have shown a lot of confidence in him. He can operate from the central defensive midfield as well as from the central midfield.
Davies is unarguably one of the blossoming youngsters in English football at this stroke of hour. The main intention of the Irons for signing Davies must be to infuse more energy in the middle of the park. The starlet has been inventive and has shown maturity, which is why he is getting a lot of attention from the football fraternity. He was handed his first-team debut by Roberto Martinez and was used sporadically by Ronald Koeman.
The Englishman might lack experience but he certainly has the ingredients necessary to excel at the very top. West Ham have Mark Noble as their leader but they will have to replace him in the long run and Davies is a very good option in that regard and if he develops consistently, he has the potential to turn into a midfield general in the years to come.
Sam Allardyce has a plethora of players at his disposal and it is reported that he is willing to listen to offers for several players to reshape his squad. Allardyce doesn’t have the inclination to work with youngsters and that might allow West Ham United to lure Davies to their ranks. Moyes is slowly making his presence felt at the London Stadium and Davies could be a decent asset for him.
