West Ham United boss David Moyes values a move for Sevilla star Lucas Ocampos ‘highly’ this summer, believing the Argentine would add something extra to his current squad.

That’s according to ABC Sevilla, who back up reports that West Ham are looking at a possible move for the forward.

Several reports this week have put the Hammers in the race for Ocampos, with it explained yesterday that they would have to pay €80m if they wanted to make a move happen.

ABC pick up on that, explaining that Ocampos is a ‘benchmark’ at Sevilla with his ‘energetic and vertical’ style of football.

He’s been in the sight of the Premier League for some time, and, with ‘movements’ expected at Sevilla in the summer, he is likely to be one of the topics of debate.

West Ham are among the latest clubs to show an interest, having played against Ocampos in the Europa League and become ‘well aware of the virtues’ of the player.

David Moyes ‘admires’ the ‘qualities’ of the player and would more than welcome a move for him this summer.

The big issue is his current contract runs until 2025 and includes an €80m release clause, which Sevilla would expect to be met.

And even if it wasn’t, a transfer would still require West Ham to make a ‘significant economic effort’ if they wish to sign the Argentine.
