Centre back addition unlikely

Reports that West Ham have opened talks over a £10million move for Le Havre defender Harold Moukoudi seem very unlikely.

The 20-year-old former France U18 international  has interest from Burnley, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Derby County but the Daily Mail claim that the Hammers have also opened talks.

Manuel Pellegrini is said to be happy with his centre backs of Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, Fabian Balbuena and Declan Rice and has no need for another centre back.

Pellegrini would like to re-enforce the defensive position but is struggling to land his transfer targets and could consider a loan of Ignacio Camacho or Stefano Sturaro but he could end up making do with Noble, Wilshere and Obiang with Rice, Zabeleta and Cullen as cover.

He remains in the market for a backup striker to replace Hugill who is currently suffering from a twisted knee but could go out on loan before Thursday. One surprise emergency striker could end up as free agent Bernard who can also play a Lanzini type role.

  1. OMG we are in big trouble if this report turns out to be true. Dreadful days ahead our midfield lacks pace and power – what a joke we will become. Again this is my opinion, I am sure Pelle knows what he is doing ?????????????????

  2. OMG. Hahahaha. Glass always completely empty Johnham.
