West Ham United view Max Kilman as 'achievable' transfer target

West Ham United view Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Max Kilman as an “achievable” target, according to the Daily Mail.

David Moyes is looking to strengthen his backline during the summer window after a largely disappointing campaign on the domestic front (Daily Mail, 22 May).

It’s understood the Wolves defender has impressed club scouts and is viewed as an attainable target for the Hammers during the off-season.


This would feel like an attainable move for West Ham. Kilman is now an established Premier League central defender and is in the prime of his career. He’s contracted to the Black Country side until the summer of 2026, so it would take a significant sum to get a deal over the line. However, the Hammers are in a stable position financially and could be looking to splash the cash once again during the summer window.

David Moyes will almost certainly remain in charge for the next campaign and it will be interesting to see if the board back the Scot once again. The likes of Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca were signed last year for substantial fees. After the disappointing domestic campaign, the board could well look to open the chequebook once again.


Kilman would be a smart piece of business. He’s proven and West Ham will know exactly what they will be getting. With Angelo Ogbonna potentially on the way out, the Englishman could well be a ready-made replacement for the Italian powerhouse.
