French right back is added to list

Toulouse’s 21-year-old defender Kelvin Amian Adou has been added to a list of right backs that West Ham have shown an interest in.

Adou is a graduate from the Toulouse FC academy. He made his Ligue 1 debut on 14 August 2016 against Marseille and since made over 100 senior appearances since 2016. He has also been capped by France at U17, U18, U19 and Under-21 levels.

The French youngster has been named by Footballer Insider and ExWHUemployee as being a player of interest to David Moyes.

Other right back names linked to West Ham include RB Salzburg’s Rasmus Kristensen, Genk’s Joakim Maehle, Nottingham Forest’s Matty Cash, Norwich City’s Max Aarons, Spurs’ Kyle Walker Peters and River Plates’ Gonzalo Montiel.

Moyes is hoping to add a right back signing to the squad before the transfer window closes tomorrow with Ryan Fredericks recovering from injury, an ageing Pablo Zabaleta struggling with the amount of games and Ben Johnson still injured.

  1. personally i am not sure why we are spending so much time looking for a right back. We have Zabaleta, Fredericks, Johnson and Ngakia. i would say we are more in need of a left back or a central defender as form seems to have disappeared from all of ours except Ogbonna.

  2. I agree, unless Ngakia was only thrown in last night because Moyes had given up on the game beforehand, I don’t see why we can’t develop him and Johnson, and use Zabaletta sparingly until Fredericks is fit, and at the end of the season, see what our situation is. These two players fit in to his young and hungry criteria. Soucek has his qualities I’m sure, but I would have hoped to see some pace alongside him, we are painfully slow going forwards
