Hammers eyeing Chelsea & Arsenal stars

West Ham are eyeing Chelsea and Arsenal full-backs as they look to strengthen their defence.

The Athletic‘s David Ornstein reports that the club are eyeing both Emerson Palmieri and Sead Kolasinac as they look to bolster their backline.

David Moyes is keen to bring in new defenders, with a centre-back and a full-back at the top of the list.

Emerson has made 55 appearances in total for Chelsea but it appears that his stock has diminished after the signing of Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.

Kolasinac, by comparison, made 19 starts in the Premier League for Arsenal last term, and it remains to be seen if the Blues or the Gunners would be willing to sell players who could be seen as valuable squad members.

Transfermarkt values Kolasinac at £14.4m, while Emerson is valued at £22.11m. Both could be expensive acquisitions for the Hammers, then, if they are to prise them away from their current clubs.

  1. Can only guess if true they are loan signings, Kolasinac can’t defend either he is a wing back not sure about Palmieri or his ability seeing as he barely plays.
