West Ham United manager David Moyes reportedly wanted Hibernian’s John McGinn when he was at Sunderland.

West Ham United are interested in signing John McGinn from Hibernian in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

It has been reported that West Ham are facing a losing battle to sign defensive midfielder Steven Nzonzi from Sevilla and are looking at McGinn instead.

Sevilla have reportedly decided to put transfers on hold for the rest of the season while they wait to appoint a successor to Eduardo Berizzo, who was recently dismissed as the club’s head coach.

According to The Sun, West Ham manager David Moyes is a massive fan of Hibernian midfielder McGinn, who could reportedly cost around £4 million in transfer fees.

This is not the first time that Moyes has been linked with the 23-year-old Scotland international midfielder.

Back in March 2017, The Daily Mail reported that Moyes, who was then in charge of Sunderland, was monitoring the former St. Mirren star with a view to signing him in the summer of 2017.

It was reported that the former Manchester United and Everton manager had personally gone to Scotland to scout the Hibs star.

McGinn is one of the best midfielders in the Scottish Premiership, and if he is given time and shown patience, then he could be a tremendous player for West Ham in the Premier League in the coming years.
