West Ham United are interested in signing Jack Harrison in the summer as Leeds United face a huge battle to stay in the Premier League.
That is according to a report from The Sun, which suggests that the Hammers are admirers of the 26-year-old.
It does appear that a mass exodus is on the cards at Elland Road this summer. Certainly, if Leeds are relegated, they will surely see a number of key players leave.
And one of those who looks likely to move on is Jack Harrison. The Athletic reported this week that his new contract at Leeds includes a release clause. It was also noted that several sides in the Premier League want the winger.
West Ham eyeing Jack Harrison
And The Sun has now suggested that one of those teams is West Ham. The Hammers are also eyeing Leicester City star Harvey Barnes.
David Moyes’ side have been linked with a number of Leeds players in the last couple of years. So it is not a huge surprise that Harrison finds himself on West Ham’s radar.
It is not clear what Leeds’ asking price would be, or what the Irons would be prepared to spend. But obviously, you would think that Leeds will not stand in Harrison’s way if we go down this weekend.
Harrison has been a really important player throughout his time with the club. He has now made over 200 appearances in all competitions. And he has scored some massive goals along the way, including our first back in the Premier League and the strike which confirmed we would be staying up last year.
At times, he has been ‘unbelievable‘. And he has more than repaid the £11 million the Whites spent to sign him permanently from Manchester City.
But he has also gone missing for lengthy periods. It must be noted that he struggled to make an impact against West Ham at the weekend.
But he also scored a hat-trick against Moyes’ men last season. And with Leeds seemingly on the brink, the Hammers are clearly sensing an exciting opportunity.
