The 35 cap Socceroos playmaker was a standout performer for the Terriers during their two years in the Premier League, and it is understood that the Hammers are in the mix to sign him this summer, alongside Wolves, Newcastle United, Southampton, Leicester City, and Watford.
It is understood that Huddersfield have slashed their asking price for the 28-year-old to around £15 million.
This would be a great signing for the Hammers. Mooy is a quality player, too good for the Championship, who has so often been the standout talent in Town’s arsenal during their time in the Premier League. The creativity he possesses and ease with which he dictates play make him an ideal candidate to slot into any top flight side, and the prospect of having him in the middle of the park, running things in front of Declan Rice and Mark Noble, is a mouthwatering one indeed. Mooy used to be a Manchester City player, and while it never worked out for him at the Etihad, you can see why the club might have been tempted to take their chances on a player of his quality. At 28, he is still in his prime, and if the Hammers can beat out the competition and snap him up this summer then they could be onto a real winner.
