​Moyes declares no West Ham interest in Chelsea striker Batshuayi

West Ham boss David Moyes has denied the Hammers are interested in signing Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea, reports Sky Sports.

The striker had been linked with the Hammers as part of a deal involving Andy Carroll joining Antonio Conte's side, but Moyes confirmed on Friday that Carroll may need surgery on an ankle.

Moyes also played down speculation he was at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea's FA Cup win on penalties over Norwich to see any players in particular and insisted he was there to watch the match.

"I don't think people should make an awful lot of it, I go to a lot of games. I'm a football supporter as well as a manager," Moyes said ahead of West Ham's game against Bournemouth.

"We never said we were interested in him (Batshuayi). We try not to talk about players at other clubs because I'm there to watch a game and wasn't necessarily there to watch anyone individually."
