Journalist: West Ham have possibility to sign Micheal Keane from Everton

West Ham have the possibility to sign Michael Keane in the summer, according to journalist Dean Jones.

According to a recent report from Daily Star, the Hammers will look to make a bid for the Everton defender if the Toffees get relegated.

David Moyes is a big admirer of the 29-year-old who made a £25million move to Goodison Park in July 2017.

“I think there’s a possibility, but they’re looking at so many people. I think they’re probably looking abroad before they look at Michael Keane if I’m totally honest,” said Jones to GiveMeSport.

“We’ll have to see what happens with Keane’s situation and where it looks like he’s going to be playing his football next season.”

Need for defender

Bolstering the defence is a priority for Moyes and Keane could be available in the market if the Toffees get relegated. 

Keane is an experienced defender who is one of the key players for the Merseyside club. 

Harry Redknapp hailed him as an “immense” player [BetVictor] after his superb performance against Leeds, and he would be a valuable addition to the side. 

Craig Dawson is not getting younger and Moyes needs to sign another defender especially after what happened this season. 

Angelo Ogbonna will be in the final year of his contract and another experienced defender is needed to replace him in the long run. 

Issa Diop is another player whose future has been speculated in the media, and he could be sold in the summer if there’s a good offer on the table. 

Everton could be open to selling him if they relegated, and Jones certainly feels there is a possibility here.
