West Ham should consider a move for Wolves ace Ruben Vinagre when the transfer window re-opens.

David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his left-back options in the summer.

Aaron Cresswell is well past his best and the less said about Arthur Masuaku the better.

And Wolves ace Vinagre could be ideal for the Hammers.

The 20-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 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 20-year-old possesses pace in abundance, and has great ball control.

Stats

In 30 Premier League appearances for Wolves, the Portuguese starlet has racked up 34 tackles, 22 interceptions, 27 clearances and 95 ball recoveries. He has won 27 50/50 battles and has created three big chances during those outings (premierleague.com).

Vinagre is at an age where he will surely get better and better. Especially if he is given the chance to play regularly.

The 20-year-old began his career as a left-winger. And his inspiration in the game is Cristiano Ronaldo (Wolves’ official website).

So he clearly has an attacking instinct.

And Vinagre would be a fantastic addition for West Ham. He would certainly be an upgrade on both Cresswell and Masuaku.

Whether Wolves would be willing to sell the 20-year-old to West Ham, however, remains to be seen.
