Central defence is an area where David Moyes really needs to strengthen at the London Stadium this summer.

Fabian Balbuena has already left the Hammers whilst Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are now 33 and 31 respectively.

West Ham have already been linked with a whole host of centre-backs since the transfer window opened.


Now there is yet another one to add to the list. And this time, it seems as though things could be at quite an advanced stage.

West Ham in talks with Barcelona ace

Ekrem Konur claims that the Hammers are in talks to sign Clement Lenglet on loan.

Everton are also said to be in the race.

The Frenchman, who earns £43k-a-week according to FC Barcelona News, is very confident in possession of the football.

In 33 La Liga appearances for Barca last season, the 26-year-old averaged 1.1 tackles, one interception and two clearances per game. He also won an average of 1.8 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).

Lenglet made 69.7 passes per game on average during those outings and recorded and incredible completion rate of 92.1% (Who Scored).

If Moyes can pick the Barca ace up on loan, it would be a wise signing. The Scot would then be able to invest his funds into other areas of his squad that are in desperate need of attention.
