West Ham have been linked again to former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

Following Bayern’s announcement this week that they will be parting company with the German in the summer, reports linking Tuchel with a Premier League return and potentially taking the helm in East London have continued.

West Ham are in a bad run of form of late, with no wins in all competitions since the end of December and having conceded 11 goals in their last three Premier League games.

This has led to much frustration amongst supporters and a lot of speculation surrounding the future of David Moyes.

After the Hammers last Premier League win against Arsenal in late December there were reports suggesting that Moyes was due to sign a new two and a half year deal until 2026. David Moyes has said today that he has in fact been offered a new deal but intends to wait until the end of the season to decide his future: “There’s a contract there for me and I’m the one deciding, I want to wait until the end of the season.”

David Moyes’ current contract expires in the summer and it is believed West Ham are currently assessing managerial alternatives.

Reports linking current Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel with joining the East London club have intensified this week following Bayern’s announcement they will be parting company with the 50 year old German in the summer.

Journalist Dean Jones posted on X (Formerly Twitter) what appeared to be a hint about the possibility of West Ham hiring Tuchel. His post read that Tuchel to West Ham “Might just be one that can fall into place”.

A number of managers have been linked with the West Ham job as well as Tuchel, including the likes of Graham Potter and Paulo Fonseca.

It remains to be seen what will happen with the managerial position in East London. If David Moyes is to get the Hammers season back on track will he in fact sign a new deal or will the club look to go in a different direction and appoint someone new for the start of next season.
