West Ham have enquired about Inter Milan ace Marcelo Brozovic, according to a report from Calcio Mercato. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
In truth, however, the Scot should be prioritising the additions of defenders and a centre-forward first and foremost.
That is if we manage to keep Declan Rice of course.
Calcio Mercato reckon that the Hammers have enquired about Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic.
The 27-year-old ace would be a decent addition for West Ham, albeit not a necessary one at the moment.
The 53-capped Croatia international was in sensational form for Inter last season. He racked up three goals and nine assists in 43 games for the Serie A outfit (Who Scored).
Brozovic is enjoying one of the best spells of form of his career. And Inter boss Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League title with Chelsea, recently described him as ‘world-class’ (Goal).
Some West Ham fans don’t seem to be convinced, however. They took to Twitter in their droves in reaction to the Brozovic links…
Well that’s a direct replacement for Rice if I ever saw one. If true then its all starting to fit
