After huge success and a victory at Goodison Park on New Year’s Day, West Ham can look forward to the second half of the season with optimism.
The Hammers may be down in 10th place, but they have the same points as London’s rivals Chelsea in fifth place.
If East Londoners buy and sell well in this transfer window, it could be the difference between qualifying for a European campaign or simply having another standard season.
However, David Moyes doesn’t appear to be wasting his time either.
According to Don balon, the Scotsman is ready to attack the Spanish giants, Barcelona, and acquire the left back, Junior Firpo.
Although Firpo’s time at Camp Nou has been disappointing and he has never come close to providing competition for the venues he was bought for, the truth is that he was never the right candidate for the club in the first place.
With the expectation that Ronald Koeman will remain at the Catalan club until the end of the season, and the left-back is not part of their plans, it makes sense for Firpo to go ahead.
The Hammers need cover for Arthur Masuaku and Firpo is “equal for equal” in many respects.
At an expected cost of £ 20 million for Don Balon, it’s a deal Moyes needs to get over the line.
