According to a report from the Telegraph, Manchester city are weighing up a move for Bayern Munich ace David Alaba. Pep Guardiola allegedly must sell Oleksandr Zinchenko first, however. And that is very good news for West Ham.

The Mirror claims that the 28-year-old Austrian could cost a mammoth £60 million.

Football.London claimed a couple of months ago that Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to sign the 23-year-old City ace.

West Ham undoubtedly need to sign a new left-back or left wing-back this summer.

And Manchester City ace Oleksandr Zinchenko would be an ideal option for us.

Arthur Masuaku has really impressed over the past couple of games. And the new 3-4-3 system deployed by Moyes really suits the 26-year-old.

But if the former Olympiacos man suffers an injury of any kind, we could be in real trouble.

 

Masuaku cannot be relied upon to perform consistently for the entire campaign either.

So with the Telegraph reporting that City boss Pep Guardiola needs to offload Zinchenko if he is to bring Bayern Munich Star David Alaba to the Etihad, West Ham surely should not hesitate to swoop in for the Ukrainian.

The 23-year-old is a real talent, and has been described by Guardiola as ‘absolutely brilliant’.

Stats

The 23-year-old made 25 appearances for City this season, racking up one goal in the process (Transfermarkt).

In 19 Premier League outings last season he averaged 1.6 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, one clearance and 0.8 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

Zinchenko would provide great competition for Arthur Masuaku. And if West Ham can tempt City into selling for a reasonable fee, this is one we should not be thinking twice about.
