Alan Nixon: West Ham United manager David Moyes scouted Wigan Athletic’s Antonee Robinson yesterday

West Ham United manager David Moyes was spotted at the Championship clash between Charlton Athletic and Wigan Athletic yesterday.

The Hammers boss was definitely on a scouting mission with some of the players involved in the clash on the club’s radar ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Sun journalist Alan Nixon was asked who Moyes was running the rule over at The Valley and he confirmed that it was United States international left-back Antonee Robinson.

The Guardian reported earlier this month that West Ham are monitoring the 22-year-old, and Moyes was keen to scout him personally.

Robinson almost joined AC Milan in January in a £10 million deal before it fell through due to medical issues, and they are possibly still keeping tabs on him.

The Wigan star has also been linked with Leicester City and West Bromwich Albion, and he could be available for just £1.5million due to a relegation release clause.

West Ham need a top left-back ahead of the new campaign having secured their top-flight status, and Robinson could be their man.

The American recorded an assist in yesterday’s 2-2 draw, and his electric pace and attacking abilities definitely caught Moyes’ eyes.

The Hammers could do with a quality upgrade on 30-year-old Aaron Cresswell, and Robinson will be a fine cover and competition before eventually replacing the England international.

Napoli Join West Ham, Everton In Race To Sign Former Chelsea Defender

Napoli have contacted Torino over the availability of Chelsea Academy product Ola Aina in the summer transfer window, according to reports.



Tuttomercatoweb citing the print edition of Corriere dello Sport says Gli Azzurri are in the market for a fullback and have identified Aina as top transfer target because of his flexibility and the ability to play on both wings.

Torino are willing to sell the versatile defender before the close of the transfer window provided his asking price is met by his suitors.

Aina joined Torino on a permanent deal last summer after impressing whilst on loan with the club during the 2018-2019 season.

The former England U19 skipper, who is now cap-tied to Nigeria, is also on the radar of Premier League duo Everton and West Ham United.

He is an international teammate of Victor Osimhen, who is on the verge of joining Napoli.

FC Nantes: The offer of an English club expected?

Captain of FC Nantes, Abdoulaye Touré will not be retained if a good offer arrives. In England, West Ham is watching him ...



With the FC Nantes armband around his arm, Abdoulaye Touré looks great. At 22, the midfielder embodies the freshness of the new Gourcuff project and its ambitions. But the kid is hungry and he knows that his future hinges on a challenge abroad.

West Ham Shortlist

Last winter, when English clubs tried to adjust their squads, Abdoulaye Touré was part of West Ham’s plans. The Hammers did not send an offer but it is not excluded that they will return this summer. And if the people of Nantes receive a nice amount, Touré will not be retained very long.

Bayern Munich closing in on West Ham United’s Benicio Baker-Boaitey

According to The Sun, West Ham United teenage winger Benicio Baker-Boaitey is set to join Bayern Munich in the coming days.

The 16-year-old will not be signing a professional deal with the London Stadium outfit when he turns 17 in January as he is set to move on instead.

Baker-Boaitey is off to Germany this week for talks with the Bundesliga giants while another Champions League club have invited him to come inspect their facilities as they look to convince him.

West Ham will have to settle for a £230,000 training compensation fees in what is set to be a major blow.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain have all sent scouts to watch the teenage winger, but it’s Bayern that appear to have won the race for his signature.

Baker-Boaitey has been with the Hammers since his schoolboy days, but he no longer sees his future at the club and is keen to join the English kids moving abroad to ply their trades.

He began his youth career at Queens Park Rangers before joining West Ham and making his debut for the under-18s just after turning 15.

RB Leipzig and Barcelona have also been linked with Baker-Boaitey, and the Hammers just didn’t have a chance of holding on to the England youth international given the type of clubs he was starting to attract.

Re: Sunday newspapers (includes West Ham)
The Charlton game was a 12.30 kick off so could watch an hour or so and get across to QPR for a 3 o’clock kick off
Hope this is true and he IS taking the chance to look at players live.
I always think you can tell a player isn’t up to it in 15 mins (2 mins for Roberto) but if you see something you want to watch them in 2 or 3 games at least.
