Report: West Ham now launch bid for £30m player, Jamie Carragher said he was 'really poor' all last season
David Moyes wanted to bring in Keane to provide some cover at centre-back, but injuries to Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey mean Everton are struggling with a crisis of their own.
Keane was signed by Everton for £30m in 2017, and has won ten caps with England since moving to the Toffees.
However, he’s not been involved in the squad since 2020, and Jamie Carragher believes the defender was ‘really poor’ last season.
West Ham have Keane bid rejected
It looks like West Ham will have to look elsewhere to bolster their ranks though, with Yerry Mina – who has also been linked with a move away – and Ben Godfrey both suffering injuries against Chelsea.
Michael Keane looks like he will have to stay at Goodison Park for now to provide cover at the back.
West Ham may be able to go in for Keane again as the window progresses and Everton have a better understanding of how bad Godfrey and Mina’s injuries are.
For now, Moyes is best off trying to pick up a defender from a side who aren’t also struggling with injuries in exactly the same position.
