According to a report from the Sun, Club Brugge ace Hans Vanaken would jump at the chance to join West Ham this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes is lining up a late swoop for the 28-year-old Belgium international according to a report from the Sun.

West Ham desperately need to bolster their defensive ranks at the London Stadium before next month’s deadline. We could also do with signing an established centre-forward as well.

Central midfield is a position that has been overlooked, however. We lack any kind of depth in the middle of the park. David Moyes could certainly do with more goals coming from midfield.

And with that in mind, Club Brugge’s Hans Vanaken would be an excellent option for the Hammers.

He would certainly improve the dynamic of our play in the middle of the park if deployed alongside Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

Vanaken has racked up four goals and two assists already this season in just six league games for Club Brugge (Who Scored).

Last season he racked up 13 goals and three assists in 29 Jupiler League outings (Transfermarkt).

The 28-year-old could be considered as an upgrade on Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals. And he could very well thrive at the London Stadium.

The Sun reckons that Vanaken would jump at the chance to join West Ham. And if that is indeed true, David Moyes shouldn’t hesitate to bring the Belgium international to the London Stadium.
