Moyes targets Brighton star to help West Ham avoid the drop

David Moyes is eyeing up a move for Brighton defender Lewis Dunk in a bid to strengthen the Hammers defence.West Ham have the worst defence in the Premier League this season after shipping 23 goals in just 11 games. They have managed to keep just three clean sheets this season, while conceding for against Manchester United and Liverpool, and three against Southampton, Newcastle, Spurs and Brighton.

The recent 4-1 defeat saw West Ham drop into the bottom three and an end to the reign of Slaven Bilic, with David Moyes being brought in to try to arrest the slump.

According to the Daily Mirror, Moyes has identified Lewis Dunk as his first transfer target of the January window in a bid to strengthen the Hammers’ defence.

Dunk has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League, helping the Seagulls to concede only 11 goals which has moved up to eighth position in the table.

However, the 25-year-old only signed a new five year deal in the summer, meaning that any potential move by West Ham will have to break the bank.
