West Ham Seeks Defensive Reinforcement


West Ham United‘s leaky defence has prompted them to pursue a potential “bargain deal” this summer for Anderlecht’s young defender Zeno Debast.

West Ham currently boasts one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League outside the relegation zone. They have conceded 58 goals, with only three teams conceding more. Centre-backs Nayef Aguerd and Kurt Zouma haven’t lived up to expectations and are attracting interest from Saudi Arabia.

With David Moyes’ future uncertain, the club’s defensive woes are an even bigger concern.

Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo, whose contract is expiring, was rumoured to be a target, but West Ham appears to be setting their sights elsewhere.

The Irons has identified 20-year-old Belgian international Zeno Debast as a possible solution. Anderlecht reportedly values him at around £13 million, a price tag considered a “bargain” by West Ham. The Hammers are reportedly pressuring Anderlecht to sell Debast, showcasing their eagerness to address their defensive issues.

Technical director Tim Steidten appears proactive in resolving West Ham’s defensive problems by targeting Debast. Whether Debast can solidify West Ham’s backline remains to be seen, but his potential and price tag does make him an attractive option.
