Hammers may move for Cornet replacement

By Hughie Southon

Dutch international Arnaut Danjuma -linked with a possible move to the Irons in the summer window – is expected to be available on loan this January.

According to some media outlets David Moyes was very keen although there were worries  whether the player would be a good dressing room personality.

A loan would be the perfect opportunity to find out the truth of that charge and whether he could become a replacement for Max Cornet who is in big trouble from a calf injury which is confusing specialists he has visited across Britain and Europe.

The former Burnley man was in fact bought in preference to Danjuma and it seems a reasonable assumption that Moyes could be tempted to go back in for him.

There will be competition for the winger with Everton interested and a move to the Premier League looks more and more likely for the near 26 year old.

  1. …….or they might not.
    Don’t West Ham have enough centre, wide and attacking midfield players with Cornet out injured?
    There’s Benrahma, Fornals, Soucek, Lanzini, Paqueta, Bowen – and if you deploy him in his former role, Antonio as well.
    Shuffle the pack or play some players like Paqueta and Lanzini in roles where they are better suited. These two in particular linked well in one of the European games last Autumn.

    • I thiought Moyes said he was bought as a left sided player whl would score plenty of goals. There’s a different reason for buying all players with various giftings isbn’t there

  2. We need two quality signings this window, one is definitely a winger and the second is a quality LB. Danjuma if he is fit and playing well would be a good option as he could also cover as a striker if needed. If we got Danjuma I would sell Antonio this window as he is just blocking the path to promote Divan to the first team squad, this young lad is potentially very very good and needs to be given game time now. I don’t understand why Moyes is looking at buying another CF when he only ever plays one up top. Just ridiculous stupidity when we have other more important positions to fill. I have not seen us linked to a LB in this window which is extremely worrying, considering we have no LB who can comfortable play and defend in a back 4. Kehrer and Emerson are just hopeless no matter what system you play but especially in a back 4, Cresswell’s form has dipped for whatever reason and he got destroyed against Saka in the arsenal game. Major problem at LB needs to be addressed this window not in the summer.
