West Ham and Tottenham transfer target Martin Terrier has ruptured his ACL, ruling him out of action for up to eight months.
Hammers boss David Moyes and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte both want to bring Terrier to the Premier League according to the likes of L’Equipe.
Terrier is a hugely exciting player, and the Rennes forward has been described as ‘rapid’ by Total Football Analysis. He has also been labelled as ‘brilliant’ by Ligue 1’s official Twitter account.
Terrier bagged 21 goals and four assists in 37 Ligue 1 games for Rennes last season, and this term he has 12 goals and five assists in 22 outings to his name (Transfermarkt).
Jeunes Footeux recently claimed that the Ligue 1 outfit were demanding around £44 million for Terrier.
That actually would have represented great value for whichever club won the race for his signature in my opinion.
It seems as though the Hammers or Spurs won’t be signing him any time soon though…
West Ham and Tottenham target ruptures ACL
Rennes ace Martin Terrier has suffered a seriously unlucky injury.
The French club posted on their official Twitter account last night:
And then L’Equipe suggested that the 25-year-old attacker could face up to eight months on the sidelines.
That’s obviously a massive blow for him, but it is for West Ham and Tottenham as well.
With Terrier potentially now out for up to eight months, the Hammers and Spurs will have to look elsewhere.
