City do not have many full-backs in their ranks. While Joao Cancelo will return after the end of the season-long loan, he is expected to be sold. As a result, they do need a new full-back. Meanwhile, the Hammers boss David Moyes is looking for more options at the back and he feels the 21-year-old could be a great addition to his ranks as he is versatile in nature and can feature anywhere on the left flank.
