West Ham reportedly making a move for Championship star

According to a report published by the Northern Echo, West Ham manager David Moyes is moving for Middlesbrough ace Adama Traore.

The Hammers are looking to bolster their options on the flanks due to Michail Antonio’s injury problems and are also considering moving for Newcastle United’s Christian Atsu should they fail to recruit Traore.

Since arriving at Boro from Aston Villa during the summer of 2016, Traore has shown flashes of brilliance and has caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs.

Chelsea explored the possibility of signing the Spaniard last year but were put off by his £15 million price tag. Boro meanwhile still value the player highly and will not allow him to leave easily.

Traore was highly impressive during the weekend when Boro played against Fulham and caused problems for Cottagers defender Ryan Sessegnon who is one of the most highly rated Championship players and reportedly a target of Tottenham and PSG.
