Dutch international Kevin Strootman has been linked with the Irons over recent days.
The Marseilles midfielder is being offered to various clubs including the Irons and although Manuel Pellegrini has no serious track record on loan signings this one has been speculated quite heavily.
The 29 year old – with numerous international appearances – would appear to be a reasonable signing although the Hammers midfield looks pretty crowded at the moment.
We currently have Mark Noble, Manu Lanzini , Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass, Jack Wilshere, Carlos Sanchez Andriy Yarmolenko and Declan Rice available so whether a move for Strootman is required is debatable.
Hammers fans appear to think it might be after we conducted a poll on the subject. Around 1,000 took part and there was a majority in favour of bringing him in.
Those voting that it would be a good move commanded just over 63 per cent of the vote with around 37 per cent voting against a move for the player.
