90 Min claimed yesterday that West Ham want to sign Monaco right-back Djibril Sidibe this summer. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
ExWHUemployee confirmed those claims yesterday, suggesting that West Ham boss David Moyes has in fact been offered the chance to bring the 28-year-old to the London Stadium on loan.
We desperately need to strengthen our right-back options before the transfer window closes next month.
Despite Ryan Fredericks’ recent resurgence, it is clear to see that he is simply not good enough to be playing regularly for a Premier League side.
The 27-year-old has blistering pace, but that’s about it. And we will be found out time and time again if Fredericks starts every Premier League game for us this season.
And Sidibe would surely be a big upgrade on the former Fulham man.
The 28-year-old racked up four assists in 25 Premier League games for Everton during a loan spell at Goodison Park last season. In those outings, he averaged 3.3 tackles, 1.6 interceptions, 1.3 clearances and 1.2 dribbles (Who Scored).
The Monaco ace proved his class during his spell at Goodison Park and clearly has the ability to cope with the robust nature of the Premier League.
And some West Ham fans have reacted positively on Twitter to the links with the French World Cup winner…
He’s miles better than Fredericks

I would take this signing. Fredricks is a championship defender relies way to much on his pace and dives in. We do need better full backs

Decent signing if we are carrying on playing wingbacks better than what we have just need a cb & left back and a striker

Would be decent. Didn’t realise Everton only had him on loan

If true, he’d actually be a good signing.

As a RWB he’d be great
So if Moyes sticks with 5 at the back then it’s a good signing
