West Ham have enjoyed an incredible 2023/24 season so far under David Moyes as they look to build on their impressive start to the season.

Form has been exceptional in the league and in Europe as the club look to continue building on their Europa Conference LEague success last season.

However, performances in domestic cup competitions hasn’t been great as the Hammers were knocked out of the FA Cup third round to Championship side Bristol City earlier this week.

It was an inexperienced side owing to mounting injuries for Moyes who will be hoping he can add to his side this January.

However, most clubs are seemingly holding back with the likes of Everton and Nottingham Forest falling foul of FFP restrictions with punishments yet to be decided.

However, it has been recently reported that Moyes could target Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips to bolster his squad and help them maintain their top six push.

According to BBC Sport, Moyes could look to sign the out-of-favour midfielder to bolster his side.

It would be a move that suits both parties with Phillips needing game time having made just ten appearances so far this season and with Euro 2024 on the horizon, the former Leeds man will desperate for more game time.

Moyes is understandably desperate to add to his squad that has been weakened by several injuries in recent weeks.

Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio are both out for an extended period, while Moyes said Mexico midfielder Edson Alvarez had missed Tuesday’s FA Cup defeat at Championship side Bristol City with a calf problem. 

Should West Ham focus on other areas?

The Hammers have been rocked by several injuries to key players recently. Jarrod Bowen and Lucas Paqueta both picked up injuries while Mohammed Kudus is with Ghana at AFCON meaning their forward line is threadbare.

The club still have Danny Ings but he has also been linked with a move away from the London Stadium with his gametime this season and form not where it needs to be.

With this shortage of attackers, it would make sense to strengthen quality and depth in the final third to ensure the club can maintain it’s impressive form heading into the second half of the campaign.
