West Ham United could make Maurizio Sarri new manager in June

West Ham United are eyeing up Lazio manager Maurizio Sarri already ahead of a potential June appointment, according to Ilmessaggero.

David Moyes has faced extreme scrutiny so far this season, with the Hammers lingering just above the dreaded Premier League drop zone.

The report suggests that Everton and Tottenham would also be interested in making the former Chelsea boss their new head coach.

“The sirens are suddenly rekindled by the Premier League: Tottenham, West Ham and Everton are courting Sarri, they are thinking about it for June,” as quoted by Ilmessaggero. (23 January)

“Conte is at the farewell step, on Paratici there is the disturbing shadow of the inhibition of two and a half years, Spurs are looking around and are always attracted to the coaches of our championship.”


Sarri wouldn’t be a bad appointment at all and there are far worse options on the market for West Ham United to explore should they sack Moyes.

The 64-year-old Italian won the UEFA Europa League with Chelsea in 2018-19 and a Serie A title with Juventus in 2019-20.

He also did a decent job at Napoli and is now thriving in Rome managing Lazio something which the West Ham United hierarchy are clearly keeping an eye on.

His past Premier League experience with Chelsea may slightly worry fans, but the Italian arguably wasn’t given a chance to prove what he could actually do at Stamford Bridge.

Come June, it’s more than likely that West Ham United will be looking for a new manager and it would be wise of the club to draw up a shortlist before they choose to sack Moyes.

For now, Moyes is safe and after a much-improved performance against Everton, the Hammers need to push on and propel themselves further up the Premier League table.
