West Ham want Szalai

Szalai played and came up against Hammers forward Jarrod Bowen in June when Hungary thumped England 4-0 at Molineux.

That offered an insight into his quality and his suitability for doing the business against Premier League strikers in a claret and blue shirt.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a superb Euro 2020 to boot and his performances have led supporters of his country to reportedly refer to him as the “Hungarian van Dijk”.

The defender has been linked with Chelsea and Newcastle in the past but it seems the Hammers are more likely to sign him now.

Moyes has already had some rotten luck with his first central defensive signing of the summer, as Nayef Aguerd has suffered an injury which has delayed his start to life in a West Ham jersey.
