The West Ham United midfielder has been through it all over the past few seasons. Coming into the 2021/22 season, Conor Coventry looks poised to be ready to shine.

The central midfield area is certainly an area with room for additional help for this season. David Moyes should look to improve this position at West Ham, if for anything, to add competition and cover for both Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Sadly, this is Mark Noble‘s last campaign in the Claret and Blue, and the likelihood of Jesse Lingard returning to the London Stadium continues to look bleak. The attacking portion of the midfield can be a revolving door between Lanzini, Fornals, and Benrahma if needed, but the CDM roles certainly need help. The line stops at the aforementioned Rice and Soucek.

Conor Coventry has an impressive technical ability, and he has shown that fabulously so far during the preseason. He also possesses a legitimate physical side to a repertoire that has surprised many due to his physical size.

Is Conor Coventry is ready to save West Ham millions?

When looking at who has stepped up during the first few preseason matches, it’s no surprise to hear or think the name of Conor Coventry. It should also come as no surprise that he could realistically see Premier League playing time this season. This leads to the answer to the question, yes, he could really save the Hammers money during this transfer window.

Whether David Moyes will completely trust him to handle to immense pressure and pace of an EPL match is another story, but this is what we know. Coventry has spent most of his West Ham career playing for their PL2 side (63 matches, to be exact). During that time, he notched six goals and contributed four assists. His style is eerily close to that of Mr. West Ham himself.

He has been an extremely loyal contributor to the club, and David Moyes has given him ample chances this summer. Whether or not he be the next Mark Noble and rise from the depths of The Academy is still to be seen, but with money being an issue this offseason, leaning towards Conor Coventry is certainly not a bad idea for the European hungry Hammers.
