According to Football.London, Ryan Fredericks’ future at West Ham could be in danger with David Moyes plotting a move to sign River Plate ace Gonzalo Montiel.

According to a report from Spanish website Estadio Deportivo, the Hammers have already agreed a deal to sign the 23-year-old Argentinian right-back.

It is claimed that the potential deal to sign the River Plate ace could be worth £9 million (Estadio Deportivo).

And if Montiel does end up moving to the London Stadium, Football.London suggest that Fredericks faces a bleak future at the club.

The 27-year-old joined West Ham on a free transfer from Fulham in the summer of 2018.

But the speedy right-back has failed to impress with the east London outfit. He certainly hasn’t lived up to expectations since swapping west London for east London 22 months ago.


Fredericks has made 38 appearances for the Hammers, racking up two goals and three assists in the process (Transfermarkt).

The former Fulham right-back, who earns £40,000 per week according to Spotrac, has been out injured since February. And during that time, Jeremy Ngakia has come into the side and set the world alight.

The 27-year-old will have a real battle on his hands to gain his place back from the 19-year-old starlet.

And if West Ham sign Montiel this summer, Fredericks’ task will be even harder.

With the Hammers allegedly prepared to sell any one of their players this summer, the former Fulham man will surely be fearing for his future at the London Stadium.
