West Ham are keen to bring in a couple of new faces this month and TEAMtalk understands David Moyes has made a new left-winger one of his priorities. 

Under the management, the Hammers have had an incredible run of success, winning a European title and moving up the English Premier League standings.

Although they are presently six points outside of the top four in sixth place, West Ham still wants to bolster their squad after an incredible summer transfer window that saw them recruit players like Mohammed Kudus, James Ward-Prowse, and Edson Alverez.

According to TEAMtalk sources, Moyes wants to add additional competition for the left flank spot, and Sunderland star Jack Clarke is one player who is of major interest.

The 23-year-old has been discussed at board level, who are looking at the best way to bring him to London.

Sunderland have made it clear that they do not want to sell Clarke and it will therefore take a big fee to lure him away from the Stadium of Light this month.

That has not put off West Ham, though, who are considering the best approach to land the Black Cats star.

Since leaving the Spurs in January 2022, Clarke has been playing quite well.

Before Sunderland made the deal official the following summer, a loan to the northeast served as the initial port of call.

Since then, the winger—who can play both left and right—has been an important member of the Black Cats’ squad.

Clarke has made 98 appearances for Sunderland so far, scoring a noteworthy 24 goals and dishing out 20 assists.

Because of his performances, he has grown to be a fan favorite, and now a number of Premier League and European teams are vying for his signature.

Burnley, Crystal Palace and Brighton have previously been linked with Clarke.

TEAMtalk sources state that West Ham now are the most engaged in the pursuit of Clarke and are poised to make their move soon.

When he made the transfer, Clarke signed a four-year contract without a release clause.

This makes it challenging for the Hammers to sign him this month; therefore, if they want to sign him before the summer, they will need to think outside the box.

It might be important to sign him as soon as possible since, according to TEAMtalk sources close to the player, there will be a lot more interest in his services after the end of the season.
