Agents trying to find the best club for Conor Cowady this summer have now contacted Post Ham United to learn of David Moyes’ interest in Everton’s challenge to the Wolverhampton captain.
West Ham have now offered Wolverhampton captain Conor Cody, amid interest from Everton
David Moyes has now been offered a chance to sign Conor Coady from Wolverhampton, but West Ham will fall behind their Premier League rival from Everton. That’s according to talkSPORT, who stated that the Toffees are the team most eager at the moment to try to land the England star.
Frank Lampard has been pushing hard for the Toffees to move the center back to Goodison Park in the last month of the market. He is determined to bolster his defense even more after a free transfer to former Burnley striker James Tarkowski after his contract with Claret expired.
Wolves are reluctant to lose Coady, but are prepared to punish the move as he has now lost his place at Bruno Lage’s side. Molineux chiefs sympathize with his desire to play football on a regular basis ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after seven years of service at the club.
Lampard believes Cody would be a perfect addition to his rank as he would bring the right personality and mentality to the Wolves Commander to elevate his dressing room. But clients have contacted Moyes to see if West Ham would be interested in competing with Everton in a deal with Wolves.
West Ham have spent £30m on a central defender already this summer, with Moyes betting on Naif Aguerde from Rennes. But the Scot will be without his new addition for the foreseeable future, having been forced to undergo surgery after sustaining an ankle injury.

Cody has been a perfect example of a captain at Wolverhampton for the past five years with his exemplary style. But the 10-man Lage man is no longer a name to grip the Lage team’s card, and The Mirror reports he can now leave for £20m – or even less.
Wolves still have Coady on a £62,000-a-week contract until 2025. But his loyalty over the years has earned the defender the right to request a transfer if he so desires.
Lampard’s insistence on signing Cody with Everton could see the Wolverhampton captain ignoring any interest shown by West Ham and Moyes to return to Merseyside. The 29-year-old polished his trade in the Liverpool academy, but made just two first-team appearances.
His performance at Molineux is what sparked the interest of Lampard, and possibly Moyes, in one fell swoop. While Lage has now moved on from Coady, he was previously full of praise.
“Cody, last time, was very important defensively and offensively, because he scored a goal [against Everton] Like a striker! “The defenders are very stressed, they know how to work together, but it’s teamwork and the whole team,” he said at a press conference in March.
“It is no surprise that he is involved with England, at all. He is one of the best players I know in football. Every time with great ambition, every time first time in the building in the morning. Every time, he brings motivation to everyone. Lead by example” .
