West Ham United to move for Newcastle United’s Jonjo Shelvey?

West Ham United to move for Newcastle United’s Jonjo Shelvey?

Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is reportedly a target for West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini.

West Ham United are considering a move for Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, according to a report.

The 26-year-old is currently nursing a thigh injury and has been used just 12 times by Toon boss Rafael Benitez this season.

Despite his reduced playing time at St James’ Park in 2018-19, however, the Daily Mail claims that Shelvey has attracted interest from Premier League rivals West Ham.

Manuel Pellegrini is said to admire the six-cap England international and would jump at the possibility to bring him to East London this month.

However, opposite number Benitez will not sanction Shelvey’s sale unless a suitable replacement in the region of £20m is signed.

West Ham have already added free agent Samir Nasri to their squad since the turn of the year.
