West Ham United made huge money in the summer thanks to the sale of Declan Rice but have managed to finally recoup some of it into the side in all the right places after what seemed months of toiling with every transfer. Yet, with the addition of Mohammed Kudus. Edson Álvarez, James Ward-Prowse, Konstantinos Mavropanos, and Andy Irving. Manager David Moyes is keen to add another name to his squad.

Former Manchester City prodigy to return to England

Brahim Diaz might have left sunny England in 2019 for Real Madrid, but he could be set to return to these fair shores with a sensational move to the Europa Conference holders West Ham United.

Diaz is currently with Real Madrid but has just returned from a profitable 3 years with AC Milan, where the Spaniard has been learning the game and impressing pundits and fans alike along the way.

Carlo Ancelotti has decided to use the 24-year-old but only sparingly, as he has had to make his impact from the bench six times in La Liga and is subject to just one start. However, in his one and only start against Las Palmas, he did score as he looked to impress Ancelotti enough to start him again.

Yet those starts seem few and far between, hence why West Ham has an invested interest in proceedings.

What would Diaz bring to West Ham?

Moyes has got his players ticking in the league this year after struggling whilst on their epic European adventure. Sitting 7th in the league with four wins, West Ham have scored in every Premier League game, and Diaz would only add to that firepower more.

Diaz is a tricky player who likes to play in behind the striker, take a man on and find that key pass that Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen would love. An eye for goal and the ability to find a striker is certainly something West Ham would benefit from if they are to go deep into the Europa League and stay competitive in the Premier League.

It would be a great move for Diaz and both clubs involved if they can get the deal over the line this winter.
