According to a report from 90Min, West Ham are keen to sign Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic in January.

The Hammers definitely need more quality in central midfield, with more support needed for Declan Rice in the ‘number six role’.

West Ham are currently in the midst of a shocking run of form. They have slumped to 16th spot in the Premier League table, having taken just two points from their last six games.

So their fans could do with some good news.

Despite Matic’s advancing years, he is still a truly top class player – one that Hammers fans should be excited about potentially signing.

And according to a report from 90Min, West Ham are interested in bringing the 48-capped Serbia international to the London Stadium in January.

Matic, a two-time Premier League winner, could be available for a bargain fee too.

His contract with United expires in the summer of 2020.

The former Chelsea ace is excellent at breaking up play. And he would add a real level of solidarity to West Ham’s defensive play.

It could be argued that Matic is already past his best. The Hammers should not hesitate to strike a bargain deal for the Serbian in January nevertheless.

The Manchester United ace could make a huge difference for West Ham.
