Report: West Ham United keen on Bournemouth full-back Adam Smith|Sportslens.com
According to the Daily Telegraph, West Ham United like bringing Bournemouth full-back Adam Smith to the London Stadium this summertime.
Manager David Moyes wants a brand-new right-back following the departures of Pablo Zabaleta and Jeremy Ngakia at the end of last season, and left-back Aaron Cresswell might also finish with quality competitors.
Smith would choose to continue playing top-flight football after Bournemouth got relegated, and his capability to play as a right-back and left-back has actually attracted him to West Ham.
Moyes is also taking a look at Brighton and Hove Albion left-back Bernardo, but there is plenty of competitors for his signature, with clubs from Germany and Turkey likewise eager.
With over 100 Premier League games for the Cherries over the last four projects, Smith, 29, brings the needed experience to the table and must be budget friendly for the skint West Ham to sign.
The Hammers need to enhance their defence if they want to avoid another transfer fight in 2020-21, and the Tottenham Hotspur academy graduate will be a great addition to their team offered his quality.
They begin their Premier League campaign with a clash versus Newcastle United on Saturday, and Moyes will intend to get some finalizings in the coming days.
