Ipswich Town overtake Everton, West Ham United in Jacob Greaves chase

Jacob Greaves has been linked with a move away from Hull City, with Ipswich Town, Everton, and West Ham United interested in him.

A report from TEAMtalk has claimed that Ipswich Town are keen on signing Jacob Greaves, and they will face competition from Everton and West Ham United.

The defender has established himself as a key player for Hull City, and he has the quality to improve all three clubs. Ipswich Town have secured promotion to the Premier League, and they need to improve their squad this summer. It will be interesting to see if they can sign the defender before the window closes.

The Tractor Boys have recently signed a versatile defender in Ben Johnson, and it seems that the newly promoted side are keen on improving their defensive unit. The 23-year-old has been a target for several Premier League clubs.

Everton and West Ham need a quality defender

Everton and West Ham could use a quality defender as well, and Jacob Greaves would be a solid acquisition for them. Everton were solid defensively last season, but they will still need to improve the backline if they want to fight for a respective finish instead of playing for survival. In addition, they are sweating over the future of Jarrad Branthwaite.

West Ham United have a quality squad, but they need to plug the gaps in their team if they want to push for European football consistently. Signing a central defender will be a priority for both clubs. The Hull City academy graduate is valued at around £13 million, making him an appealing target.

The 23-year-old will certainly be attracted to the idea of competing in the Premier League, and he will be excited to join clubs like Everton or West Ham. However, the two clubs have fallen behind Ipswich Town in the chase. The central defender is relatively young, and he is likely to improve with coaching and experience. He could develop into a key player for his next club in the coming seasons.

The reported valuation seems quite reasonable, and Greaves could easily justify the investment in the long term. It will be interesting to see which of the three English clubs come forward with an official proposal to sign the central defender, with the newly-promoted Ipswich Town currently in the lead.
