West Ham are eyeing a move to sign Queens Park Rangers defender Rob Dickie in January, according to a report from Football League World.
The speculation comes just after the Hammers were dealt a huge blow with the news that Angelo Ogbonna could be out for the remainder of the season following an ACL injury that he picked up against Liverpool on Sunday.
West Ham boss David Moyes may well be keen to bolster his centre-back ranks at the London Stadium.
The Scot does have Craig Dawson and Issa Diop in reserve as well as talented youngsters Jamal Baptise and Aji Alese.
Moyes will probably want more experience, however, considering how many games we have to face in the new year.
West Ham eyeing up January Rob Dickie swoop
The 25-year-old QPR ace is on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the January transfer window according to FLW.
The towering centre-half stands at 6ft 4in tall and he has been in fine form for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship this season.
In 17 league outings for QPR, Dickie has averaged two tackles, 1.4 interceptions, 3.5 clearances and 0.7 blocks per game (Who Scored).
He has won four aerial duels per match (Who Scored).
Dickie made 60.6 passes per game on average and recorded a completion rate of 80.7% (Who Scored).
The centre-back is very combative, is a tenacious tackler and is as fit as they come.
He certainly seems to fit into the category of the kind of player David Moyes likes.
And if West Ham can pick Dickie up for a reasonable fee in January, we would be more than happy to see Moyes bring him to the London Stadium.
