Hammers hopes rising on right back

Alvaro-Arbeloa-Real-Madrid-551608West Ham are confident that they will bring in Β a right back before the transfer window closes tonight.

Claret andHugh has not been given a name at this stage but word is that it may be Real Madrid’s veteran Alvaro Arbeloa.

The 33 year old former Liverpool and Spain defender is being touted as the name in the frame but at this stage we have no official confirmation.

The belief that Michail Antonio could be converted into a full time right sided defender having been proved incorrect, has left the squad with a lopsided and unbalanced look – a position the club is having to correct on the final day of the window.

Our top soure said:: “Now we have the acceptance Antonio is a winger not a right back we have a surplus of wide player.

We are trying to rectify the position today and as things stand at the moment we are hopeful.”

  1. Would be an interesting signing, certainly a great defender over the years and perhaps Byram can learn a lot from him, if of course the rumour is true and it happens πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve just read the post again and what’s jumped out at me is that Arbeloa is 33 years old – signing someone of that age is taking a big chance.
    What’s his fitness record like?
    At 33 players spend most of their time on the Treatment Table – go for youth every time!

  3. He is a quality rb imo.As 32 says Byram could learn so much from him & there is nothing wrong with a bit of experience.Many a good tune played on an old fiddle so they say πŸ™‚

  4. Can we pray that it’s Sergio Ramos that’s on his way?

  5. I think it’s been an Interesting window for West Ham but I can’t help thinking that we have missed a super chance (Again ! ) with Bony , if we had got him I feel we would have been a match for anyone – I just hope I’m proven wrong and he does no good at Stoke ??? and Za Za is no Ha Ha ??? – Time will surely tell !

  6. What’s Faubert up to?

  7. He has just signed on loan with Real Madrid Michael πŸ˜‰

  8. Bit like having gandalf as you’re mentor. If they get past you laddy just use the staff ?
    . πŸ˜‰

  9. Surely Bilic is his best bit of advisory being a defender and all ? Just saying πŸ™‚
