Insider ExWHUemployee has urged West Ham United to sign Anthony Martial on loan amid talk of a possible exit.
According to Italian media outlet Corriere Della Sera, Juventus are keen on signing the Frenchman if they cannot get a permanent deal done for Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
While discussing the reports on The Transfer Show podcast, Ex claimed that Martial would make a good signing for anyone and claimed that he would love to see the player join West Ham on loan from Manchester United.
He explained: “I think if anyone signs him, that would be a good signing. I would like West Ham to try and sign him on loan, but I think that move is probably unlikely.”
He later added: “I still think Martial’s a good player. Not entirely sure how well he did on loan at Sevilla – don’t think he played particularly well against West Ham when he played, but there’s a lot of potential in that player.
“I think he’s been a good player for Manchester United over the years. Give him a club where he’s made to feel like the number one player, I think that could mean that he goes on to be a good player for that team.”

Perhaps with that in mind, this is why Ex states that West Ham could get the most out of him should they make him feel as though he is their ‘number one player’.
However, even if Martial was to sign, considering that the Hammers have sealed a £35.5m move for Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca since Ex’s claim, if the Frenchman was to end up in claret and blue, it seems more likely that the Italian would be the main man for David Moyes.
