West Ham manager David Moyes has shelved a move for Villarreal forward Arnaut Danjuma as he prioritises the signing of Jesse Lingard. 

The Hammers had discussions with Villarreal over a move for Danjuma, who is valued at £35million.

Moyes wasn’t convinced that signing the Holland international was the best option for his team.

The main focus for West Ham now is to sign Lingard, who is available as a free agent following his departure from Manchester United.  

Lingard enjoyed a hugely productive loan spell at West Ham in the second half of the 2020-21 season as he scored nine goals in 16 Premier League appearances.

Signing the 29-year-old is unlikely to be straightforward, however, with West Ham having reservations about meeting his wage demands of £150,000-a-week. 

West Ham have already signed defender Nayef Aguerd from Rennes, while goalkeeper Alphonse Areola made his loan move from Paris Saint-Germain permanent.

Moyes is eager to make further additions to his squad, with West Ham looking to build upon last season’s seventh place finish.
