West Ham United are looking to solidify their left-back position with reported interest in Fenerbahce defender Jayden Oosterwolde, according to Sports Digitale

While Emerson Palmieri has established himself as the first-choice left-back, West Ham struggled for reliable cover during absences due to injury. Aaron Cresswell’s recent one-year contract extension is seen as a stop-gap measure rather than a long-term solution.

The 23-year-old Dutch defender had a strong season with Fenerbahce, starting 20 league matches and playing a key role in their narrow miss of the Turkish Super Lig title.

Oosterwolde’s arrival would not only provide much-needed cover for Emerson but also create healthy competition for the starting spot. His versatility extends beyond left-back, as he can also play in central defence on both the left and right sides, making him a valuable asset for manager Julen Lopetegui‘s tactical plans.

West Ham’s interest in Oosterwolde could be part of a larger defensive overhaul under Lopetegui. With the potential departures ofย  Nayef Aguerd, and Kurt Zouma, the Hammers are actively seeking reinforcements in the backline.

The signing of Oosterwolde would provide West Ham with a young, promising defender who can compete for a starting role and offer depth across the backline. His arrival, along with other potential signings, could usher in a new era for West Ham’s defence.

    What about Ollie Scarles? … Surely he did enough in his appearances to further his claims to be our next LB? He needs to be developed to take over from Emerson in a couple of seasons at most.

    Osterwolde is simpl great. He’s too underrated… 35 mil Pounds is nothing for him. Next year ManU will want to buy with 100 M for sure
