David Moyes eyes upgrade on West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell

David Moyes is reportedly looking at upgrades on first-choice West Ham left-back Aaron Cresswell in this summer transfer window.

According to the Sun, despite him being a regular, he recently received two sending offs in the Europa League which has made the manager feel the need for a replacement.

The Englishman is also 32 and is reaching the final few years of his footballing career.

Makes sense

Cresswell is on the wane and it’s apparent for everyone to see that he is now becoming a liability in this squad.

While he still may have his moments of magic, it’s hard to bank on him to get the job done, especially in the defensive third.

He has been caught out of position time and again and he does not have the legs anymore to make up ground on others.

While he must be kept on as a backup and solid dressing room presence, he cannot be a regular going into the new season.

Moyes was not backed in January and GSB have to pull out all the stops to back them in the summer transfer window.

At least six first-team signings are needed as the Hammers have it in them to push for the top four once again and if not, finish in sixth place.

In other West Ham news, a football finance expert has made a mammoth £200m Hammers claim amid recent speculation.
