Hammers boss David Moyes will be looking to bolster his left-back ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

And the same can be said of Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road.

Baggies chief Slaven Bilic, meanwhile, could be on the look-out for more cover on the left side of defence at the Hawhtorns.

And the Daily Mail claims that Brentford ace Rico Henry could be an option for West Ham, Leeds and West Brom.

In fact, ExWHUemployee claimed more than two weeks ago that the Hammers want to sign the 23-year-old, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast.


Henry played every single league game for Brentford this season. In those 46 outings, he averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.9 clearances per game (Who Scored).

The former Walsall ace is an incredibly strong, quick and mobile defender. He also possesses fantastic positional awareness.

The 23-year-old clearly demonstrated throughout the 2019/20 campaign that he is ready to take the step up to the Premier League next season.

And all that remains to be seen now is whether West Ham, Leeds or West Brom win the race for Henry’s signature.

The Sun claims that the Brentford ace is valued at around £7 million. And that price would represent excellent value for whichever club ends up signing the 23-year-old left-back.
