West Ham United are preparing for a busy transfer window in order to forget this season’s disappointment in the Premier League.

David Moyes is reportedly preparing for a summer clearout, with Albian Ajeti the first to leave the London Stadium [The Guardian].

Five other names have been reported to have doubts over their futures, with the likes of Felipe Anderson potentially leaving east London.

So, with the exits being touted already, who could be coming in through the front door?

A report from the Manchester Evening News has claimed that the Irons are considering a move for free-agent forward Dion McGhee.

The 19-year-old was released by Manchester United at the end of this current season, with both Rangers and AZ Alkmaar reportedly interested.

McGhee has not yet made a decision on his next move, with the Hammers keen to win the race for his signature.

McGhee clearly wouldn’t be the player to come in and replace Ajeti next season, but he would certainly become a great option in the under-23s.

Moyes has been forced to utilise young forwards such as Xande Silva, and if that is the same in the next campaign, McGhee will slot in perfectly to the academy side.

The 19-year-old is highly versatile as this WyScout graphic and has played as a striker, winger and a full-back for the Red Devils in the past year.

Being versatile could be key to McGhee’s hopes of succeeding at the London Stadium, with left-back an area where the Irons have struggled this season.

Arthur Masuaku has had doubt cast over his future and Aaron Cresswell hasn’t been the best this season, but McGhee would need to prove his consistency in the academy first, that’s for sure.
