High earner “ready to quit” club as West Ham want him and is loved by Declan Rice

 A January exit is very much on the cards.

According to a story this week, a high-earning player at one club is “ready to quit” in January as West Ham considers making a move to recruit him.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the current Premier League season, manager David Moyes is the subject of a lot of speculation regarding his future.

Reports suggest that Moyes is unlikely to receive a new contract offer from West Ham. However, it’s anticipated that the Hammers board will make an effort to support their head coach in the interim by adding new players next month.  West Ham’s board and directors will be “working” on winter transfer plans in January, according to Fabrizio Romano.

According to trustworthy club insider ExWHUemployee, Tim Steidten’s primary objective is reportedly to sign a new striker. Due to Michail Antonio’s injury, West Ham’s front line is noticeably thin, and Gianluca Scamacca was not replaced by the team in the summer.

This season, Moyes has relied on makeshift options like Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen because he doesn’t think Danny Ings can lead West Ham to victory. Both players have shown promise, but it’s arguable that the team needs a reliable goal scorer.

Steinen’s top targets for West Ham strikers include Timo Werner of RB Leipzig, Armando Broja of Chelsea, and Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart. However, it’s possible that they will want to bolster other important areas as well.

Despite bringing in both James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez in the past window, a new midfield player may very well be on the horizon. They’ve been connected to Kalvin Phillips, a Man City outcast.

Phillips “ready to quit” as West Ham eye move

The England international has had a difficult time at City due to a combination of missed opportunities and injury. Phillips’ prospects are extremely slim because Rodri is one of the top defensive midfielders in world football and a lock for a spot in Pep Guardiola’s starting eleven.

According to numerous reports, he might depart from Eastlands in January, with West Ham being a possible destination.

Journalist Pete O’Rourke of Football Insider claims that Phillips is “ready to quit” City as West Ham considers making a move to sign him. Newcastle, Tottenham, and Juventus have also expressed interest in playing with the Irons prior to January.

Despite his recent fitness problems and restricted playing time, the £165,000-per-week midfielder (Salary Sport) is still a regular at the international level and may provide Moyes true quality.

Declan Rice, a former West Ham captain, has referred to him as the “best professional”.

To be honest, I think he’s one of the best professionals I’ve ever seen,” Rice told talkSPORT.”Kale always puts on a shirt and gives it his all when he returns here. I’ve seen players who don’t play and throw their toys out of the pram completely.”
