West Ham’s January Transfer Window Revisited

West Ham’s pursuit of an attacker in the January window is back in the spotlight as reports emerge of renewed interest in Steven Bergwijn. With David Moyes’ departure and Julen Lopetegui’s arrival, the Hammers’ transfer strategy seems to be shifting.

Back in January, Bergwijn was linked with a move to West Ham as a potential replacement for the injured Paqueta. The Dutch winger himself expressed openness to a return to the Premier League, but the Hammers ultimately prioritised Kalvin Phillips’ signing, a decision that reportedly contributed to Moyes’ exit.

With a new manager at the helm, West Ham seems to be revisiting the Bergwijn possibility. Journalist Johan Inan claims Bergwijn’s agents have informed Ajax of their client’s desire for a move, potentially to the Bundesliga or the Premier League, where West Ham remains interested.

Despite Ajax’s struggles this season, Bergwijn has been a consistent performer, averaging a rating of nearly 7.25/10. He has contributed 13 goals and 4 assists in 27 starts across all competitions (courtesty of whoscored). His versatility, playing on the left, right, or even as a forward, could offer Lopetegui tactical flexibility.

Bergwijn’s previous stint with Tottenham wasn’t a resounding success. However, some Spurs fans believe he deserved more opportunities. With a fresh start under a new manager at West Ham, Bergwijn could potentially prove his worth in the Premier League.

The comments from Bergwijn’s agent add fuel to the transfer speculation. West Ham’s interest, coupled with the player’s openness to a move, suggests that this transfer saga is worth watching in the coming weeks.
