Hammers could lose BOTH right backs in three months


To lose one right back is unfortunate, but to lose sounds like a reshuffle. As preposterous as that sounds, it’s precisely where West Ham could find themselves in just three months. Because not only is Ben Johnson on the cusp of leaving the Hammers, but Coufal could be off too.

According to Turkish media reports, Besiktas are showing a strong interest in signing Vladimir Coufal during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Turkish club is reportedly in the market for a new right back and has set their sights on the Czech international, whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

Fancy sharing a cab? The Hammers could be in for a busy transfer window.

While West Ham has the option to extend the 31-year-old’s contract for an additional year this summer, Besiktas plans to approach Coufal before the season concludes, hoping to persuade him to join their squad.

Hopefully, there is a succession plan and Tim Steiden has already identified one or two replacements. The Irons need a massive rebuild during the summer, with wingers, forwards, midfielders, and defenders required. However, with Financial Fair Play being ever more strictly enforced, West Ham will need to find bargains in some positions to bulk out the squad.

Anyone know what Pablo Zabaleta is doing these days?
