Report – Hammers to reignite midfielder interest

West Ham are set to reignite their interest in Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker this summer, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

The Hammers were reportedly interested in signing the Belgium international in the January transfer window, only to eventually plump for Joao Mario, securing the Portuguese on loan from Inter Milan.

The Mirror report that David Moyes wants two midfielders this summer, after also keeping an eye on Stoke City’s Joe Allen and Bournemouth’s Harry Arter.

And Dendoncker heads up the list, with Anderlecht valuing the 22-year-old at £20m.

Meanwhile, the report states that Pedro Obiang is a wanted man, with Fiorentina interested in acquiring his signature.

The Serie A giants also wanted Obiang in January, but were unable to secure a deal and he is now injured.

Nevertheless, they remain interested, with their own midfielder Milan Badelj set to leave on a free transfer in the coming months.

  1. West Ham certainly need a bit of an athletic ball-winning and passing midfielder.
    Obiang hasn’t remained healthy, playing just 66 games in 3 seasons…
    Nobes is starting to (Starting???) look too slow and off the pace and Kouyate seems to be playing for a different team?!

    Premiership is a squad game and more diversity and options need to be available for a manager who can coach anywhere…..

  2. Bit late now we could of signed him in the window if we didn’t have total muppets running the club …we don’t hear or do anything in the window now the club are up four talking about future targets to try and make us happy again…this makes me so angry if I’m honest.. They can do one ..
