West Ham fans have been discussing the possibility of signing Oleksandr Zinchenko on social media.
In an interview with the Italian media, reported via The Daily Mail, Zinchenko’s agent confirmed his client is open to leaving Manchester City.
Napoli want to sign the versatile player but some West Ham fans on Twitter want to rival them.
Zinchenko is a talented young player but is always going to find game time hard to come by at Man City.
The 21-year-old operates predominantly as a central midfielder. But he can also fill in at left-back or on the wing.
West Ham could use January to look for a new left-back. Aaron Cresswell’s form has been patchy for a while now and Arthur Masuaku’s defending is constantly criticised.
Zinchenko is a makeshift left-back but possibly an upgrade on the current options.
This is what West Ham fans are saying about the Ukraine international, who knows Andriy Yarmolenko.

We need a better left back and CM cover. Just saying. https://t.co/F2DpzCzMzp

He’d be good fresh legs for CM next to or in front of Declan but he’s no LB and he wouldn’t get in front of Felipe on the LW. Kid has potential but I don’t think he’s for us. Ryan Bertrand all day long. Don’t wanna look at another LB ⚒

Was gonna cost Wolves £16 million in the summer. Think we could definitely come up with that.

For me it's him or Ryan Bertrand

We need a new LB and this guy fits the bill. We also seem to have a good relationship with City.
Hopefully something comes of it. https://t.co/jRjEisrqFk
