West Hm are believed to be discussing a possible move for £5million rated Sweden left-back Ludwig Augustinsson whilst continuing to chase Hull City’s Andy Robertson..
Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is an admirer of the Swede but Robertson is the priority choice and the Hammers are doing their best to get a deal across the line over the next few days.
However, they are keeping their Augustinsson iron in the fire as they look for the ideal replacement/back up for Aaron Cresswell who will be out for up to four months.
The 22-year-old started his career at IFK Gothenburg, featuring 29 times before his switch to FC Copenhagen 18 months ago.
De factor director of football David Sullivan has seen a bid for Norwich City’s Robbie Brady fail and is focusing his efforts on Robertson – whom the club have liked for a long time – and the 22 year old Swede who has represented his country at international level on four occasions.
Any word from the club on us signing a right back Hugh? Little worried that we arent even being linked with one…
We simply must make Robertson our No 1 target. And I agree with EastHam, a RB has to be a very big priority-Antonio has to be used in an attacking role, not as a RB.
