West Ham is planning to sign a 125,000-a-week Premier League player following Lingard's departure ...

After failing to sign Jesse Lingard, West Ham are now considering a 10 million bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Mirror.

The Hammers have been following Lingard for the majority of the summer, although the Guardian believes he is now likely to join Nottingham Forest after they expressed their willingness to meet their wage demands.

According to the same report, some at the London Stadium aren't even sure that Lingard wants to rejoin them.

West Ham have apparently turned their attention to Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Mirror claims that the east Londoners are prepared to pay 10 million for the 125,000-a-week player, whom the Reds paid 35 million for when signing him from Arsenal back in 2017.

Due to injuries as well as the fierce competition for spots under Jurgen Klopp, the England international made only nine Premier League starts last season.

If an appropriate offer is made, Liverpool may be tempted to sell their No.15 this summer, according to our opinion. As Oxlade-Chamberlain is in the final 12 months of his contract at Anfield.

If he isn't sold this summer, Liverpool will lose him for nothing in 2023, unless they tie him down to fresh terms.

Oxlade-Chamberlain would be a risky move for David Moyes, according to our opinion.

As previously stated, the midfielder has struggled with injuries, which were evident again last Friday when he was forced off during a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in Singapore.

It remains to be seen how serious this particular setback was, although Moyes would certainly want assurances if they decide to sell their 10 million-a-week deal to Oxlade-Chamberlains.com.

Sadly, we do not believe that any assurance can be given. The 28-year-old has missed a total of 125 games throughout his career due to injuries, and is showing little signs of putting them behind him.

West Ham should carefully consider bringing him to the London Stadium.
