According to a report from the Daily Mail, Wolves are prepared to sell Ruben Vinagre this summer. And West Ham boss David Moyes should not hesitate to bring the talented youngster to the London Stadium.
The Hammers boss desperately needs to add a new left-back to his ranks this summer.
Aaron Cresswell has regressed badly over the past two years. And Arthur Masuaku just isn’t consistent enough to play at left-back.
Moyes has repeatedly suggested that he wants to add young and hungry players to his ranks at West Ham this summer.
And bearing that in mind, Wolves star Vinagre would be absolutely perfect for the Hammers.
The 21-year-old joined the Black Country outfit from Monaco on loan initially in 2017, before making a permanent move to Molineux for just £2 million in the summer of 2018 (Express & Star).
When the Portuguese ace has played he has really impressed.
But the problem is that he hasn’t been given regular game-time at Molineux by Nuno Espirito Santo.
Perfect for West Ham
Vinagre can operate as either a traditional left-back or as a more advanced left wing-back. This makes him the ideal signing for for the Hammers, given the fact that David Moyes likes to chop and change between 4-4-2 and 3-5-2 formations.
The Wolves man made 16 Premier League appearances for Nuno’s side last season. In those outings, he averaged 1.4 tackles, 0.7 interceptions and 0.9 clearances per game (Who Scored).
The Portuguese youngster perfectly fits the mould of player David Moyes wants to bring to West Ham. The Wolves starlet is young, mobile, energetic, dynamic and he has a huge ceiling.
The Hammers must not hesitate to bring Vinagre to the London Stadium. He would be an absolutely massive upgrade on Aaron Cresswell.
