West Ham United is gearing up for another shot at signing French full-back Bradley Locko after a disappointing January transfer window.

The lack of reinforcements in January, a decision attributed to various figures within the club, severely hampered West Ham’s progress. The need for squad depth was evident, but it remained unaddressed.

While January saw no success beyond the Kalvin Phillips signing, West Ham is reportedly considering revisiting some of their previous targets. Get Football News France suggests French youngster Bradley Locko could be back on their radar.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough season with Brest, playing a crucial role in their historic Champions League qualification. This success makes him a player Brest will likely struggle to retain.

West Ham isn’t alone in their pursuit of Locko. Lille and Nottingham Forest are also reportedly interested, although Forest’s Premier League restrictions could hinder their chances.

Locko possesses the exact qualities West Ham craves: young, ambitious, and brimming with potential. His emergence as a potential French national team player adds further weight to his value.

Missing out on Locko would be a significant setback for West Ham. He represents a golden opportunity to secure a future star and bolster their defensive options. The upcoming summer window will be a test of West Ham’s resolve to learn from their January mistakes and secure the signings they desperately need.

    Buying another young foreigner doesn’t bode well for our academy players

  • Jeeps says:

    Two places severely under need for bolstering last season were defence and sub bench.
    Moyes preferred a small squad which put pressure on his trusted players.
    Subs were almost non existent as he didn’t have any quality backup.
    New manager has already stated there is a need to integrate academy players.
    This combined with additional defence (injuries?) can only be good for team.
