Just when it looked like Aston Villa were the favourites to sign Leander Dendoncker, David Moyes’ West Ham United have reportedly joined the race, and they could pull off a swap deal.

Sky Sports and Sami Mokbel of The Daily Mail both claim that the Irons have asked Wolverhampton Wanderers about the possibility of signing the Belgian before the window shuts tonight.

West Ham want to sign Wolves star Leander Dendoncker

The Hammers are on the market for a new central midfielder and also a centre-half.

Sky claim that Southampton’s Jan Bednarek will be the man to bolster David Moyes’ backline, but it’s Dendoncker who has emerged as a target for a spot in the middle of the park.

The 27-year-old, branded as ‘brilliant’, has been at Wolves since he joined them on an initial loan deal all the way back in 2018. That move was made permanent in the following year, and the Belgian has been a fantastic servant for the Molineux club since.

With just one year left on his contract now, Dendoncker could be on the move, and he’s a wanted man.

TalkSPORT claim that Aston Villa are really keen to sign the talented Wolves man, but West Ham are now in the race, and they may just have an edge over Steven Gerrard’s side.

Moyes could offer Dawson in exchange for Dendoncker

Craig Dawson’s time at West Ham seems to be coming to an end. Moyes revealed yesterday that they have received an offer from an unnamed club to sign the defender, and there’s a good chance he’ll leave today.

Aston Villa, who could lose Dendoncker to West Ham, could now suffer a double blow in the same deal.

The Daily Mail (07:53 am) claimed this morning that Villa had enquired about signing Dawson. Mokbel has now revealed that West Ham could use the defender in a swap deal to sign Dendoncker.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out for all three clubs in the coming hours.
