West Ham looking at Juventus defender


West Ham interested in Koni de Winter

Juventus will reportedly hold a meeting next week over the transfer of Koni De Winter amid links to West Ham,

According to Tutto Juve journalist Mirko Di Natale, Sassuolo are also keen on securing the 20-year-old’s services.

Out on loan at Empoli this past season, the Belgian has featured on 14 different occasions for them in the Serie A.

The youngster can play in multiple positions and this would surely be a sensible signing that would benefit any manager who takes over at West Ham.

Thus far, nothing has been said about David Moyes and that could be down to the fact that the club do not want to cause any unrest ahead of the Conference League final.

However, in De Winter, the Hammers will get someone who’s capable not just at centre-back, but also at right-back and defensive midfield.

He may not be ready for a first-team role at the London Stadium but could grow into it as time passes and the fact that he can play as a defensive midfielder is a bonus.
