Report: Hammers to battle for French winger free agent

West Ham are claimed to be interested in signing LA Galaxy’s Romain Alessandrini who will be a free agent after leaving the MLS side in January.

The Daily Star claims the Hammers and Aston Villa are reportedly set to battle it out this January for the  30-year-old LA Galaxy winger.

The Frenchman has been one of the standout performers in the MLS since joining the Los Angeles-based franchise in January 2017.

Since moving to Los Angeles, the right-winger has been in impressive form in the MLS. In 63 matches, he has 24 goals and 23 assists.

This season he has made just seven appearances in the competition, providing two assists. That is due to a knee injury that has kept him out of the action for much of the year  he has missed 33 games since January.

Alessandrini came through hometown club Marseille’s youth ranks before finishing off his development at Gueugnon.

Another transfer rumour that should be taken with a large pinch of salt if nothing else due to his age and his injury record without bringing Mario Husillos into the equation.

  1. Bound to sign him if he’s carrying an injury.😱😱

  2. Sounds about right.
    History of injury
    Never heard of him
    Another position not needed.
    Probably not too far from truth.

  3. Hi guys. This is not a reply to this news, but rather it’s my choice of starting eleven for the game against Arsenal.
    Martin. Fredericks. Balbuena. Ogbonna. Cresswell.
    Anderson. (Snodgrass) . Diop ( Noble). Rice. Masuaka. Antonio. Haller. Two centre backs good pairing. Left back +left half good pairing. Right back +Right half good pairing Diopp + Rice inpregnable attacking options great midfield team partnership, reunited,with a good understanding of each other . Antonio +Haller goals goals goals. Diopp can do what Rice has done pacy stronger as he learn the position thoroughly. This way no real funds needed to be spent on the wrong type of player for this great club. COYI. 🙂

  4. This would be an absolute belter of a free signing. This boy can play. Anyone saying they haven’t heard of him clearly don’t look anywhere outside of the prem. Yes he’s 30, but so’s Yarmolenko, and Alessandrini has alot more explosive pace. Thought it would have been a massive coup for Villa when i saw they were linked and that was before i knew he was a free agent and was guessing it would be about a £20m fee. Can’t see it happening but would be incredible.

  5. Knee injury…..30 years old. Hmmm….
