West Ham are plotting a double swoop on Nottingham Forest for Matty Cash and Joe Worrall when the transfer window opens, according to reports in England.
The Hammers tried to sign Cash back in January, but the London club’s interest in Worrall is a new development. Fans on Twitter are split over whether a bid for the pair would be a good idea:
Plenty of Championship experience.

There are doubts over both players. Cash was only converted into a fullback by Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi last summer, after being mostly utilised as a winger by previous managers.
He has performed well in the role, having scored three goals and contributed four assists in 39 appearances this season, but he is untested at the highest level.
As for Worrall, the 23-year-old struggled during a loan spell at Rangers last season but he has improved since returning to the Championship. Forest’s defensive record is the joint-fourth best in the second tier.
