West Ham Eye Free Transfer Solution for Defensive Woes


West Ham‘s defensive frailties are a well known major concern, and David Moyes, whose future at the club is uncertain, is reportedly eyeing a potential solution.

The Hammers’ backline has been far from convincing this season. Kurt Zouma’s struggles with injuries and Nayef Aguerd’s adaptation issues have exposed weaknesses in central defence.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his own future, Moyes is said to be targeting a free transfer to bolster his defence. The name on his wishlist is Tosin Adarabioyo, a 26-year-old centre-back from Fulham.

The 6ft 5in defender’s physical presence and aerial prowess make him an attractive prospect. He could potentially form a strong partnership with Konstantinos Mavropanos. The fact that Adarabioyo is available on a free transfer adds to the deal’s appeal. This would be a cost-effective way for West Ham to address a critical area of weakness.

However, the potential success of this transfer strategy apparently hinges on David Moyes remaining in charge. With his contract expiring in the summer, it’s unclear who will be making the transfer decisions come window time. I have no idea why this is, presumably some sort of relationship with the Fulham board.

The prospect of signing Adarabioyo for free is undoubtedly enticing. However, the uncertainty surrounding Moyes’ future and the potential need for a more long-term solution at centre-back leave some room for doubt regarding this approach.
