West Ham could bid for Juventus left back


Kwadwo-Asa23-1The Hammers could make a move Kwadwo Asamoah in January if he refuses to sign a new contract with Juventus. The 28-year-old has one year left on his current contract.

According to Calciomercato West Ham are ready to put in a bid for the Ghanaian but will face competition from Galatasaray who are readying a £3.35m bid for Asamoah.

Asamoah has been with Juventus since 2012, but has struggled with injury which has limited his game time, and he even asked to be excused from international duty after the 2014 World Cup to concentrate on his club career.

The player has the ability to play at left-back or in central midfield making 24 appearances in 2016/17 for Juventus as they won a sixth successive Scudetto and the Coppa Italia.

The Italian champions risk losing the Ghanaian for free next summer if they fail to tie him down.

Manager Massimiliano Allegri likes Asamoah, who has made 100 appearances for Juventus.

    This is West Ham we’re talking about, so I’m not saying we’re not daft enough for this to be true, but do we realy need another Left Back when we have Cressie… and Arthur etc. Has the club found a way to clone Lanzini so we now have no creactive midfield problems?

    We should not even be entertaining this. He’s 28 with a history of injuries. One of which kept him out for 10 months last season so that on its own should be a great big red flag!
    Arthur is 23, Cressy 25. I’m pretty sure he’s not better than what we’ve got so move on please. If anything, they should be concentrating on another RB. Zab will last this season definitely. Next season?
