Surprise Club Targeting £12 Million Move For Jonjo Shelvey

West Ham are plotting a surprise swoop for Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, according to John Cross from The Mirror.

David Moyes has made midfield a priority area to strengthen in and feels that the former Liverpool man can make a real difference.

There's no denying that Swansea is an exceptionally gifted footballer but his disciplinary issues have hindered him hugely. He's been sent off twice this season and has been dropped by Rafa Benitez because of his actions costing the team.

It's said that Moyes feels Shelvey's aggression and passing range could be useful to his side and it appears the deal could well go ahead, with the former Swansea man no longer seen as indispensable at St James' Park.

Amanda Staveley's pending takeover has still not gone ahead and is not guaranteed to be finalised in time for reinforcements to be made. That could tempt Newcastle into selling, though they would look to receive the £12 million they paid to sign him from Swansea in 2015.

Shelvey, now 25, has all the attributes to be a very good midfielder but there's a feeling that he's still not realised his full potential. Maybe a switch back down South for the Charlton youth product, at the London Stadium, could be exactly what he needs.

He isn't the only option West ham are looking at though, with Bournemouth's Harry Arter and Stoke City's Joe Allen also being considered.

Would Shelvey be a good fit at West Ham?

Sound off in the comments.
