According to a report from AS, West Ham are ‘very interested’ in signing the 18-year-old right-back in the summer transfer window, and his agent is currently in London to try and thrash out a deal.

Hammers boss David Moyes should definitely be looking to sign a talented young right-back with pace and power to burn, in order to upgrade upon Vladimir Coufal.

And it seems as though that is exactly what he is trying to do…

Agent in London to thrash out deal for West Ham to sign ‘very special’ Ivan Fresneda

AS reckon that the Hammers are really keen to bring the Spanish teenager to the London Stadium this summer.

If Moyes manages to get this one over the line it will be a seriously good piece of business for West Ham.

He’s said to be available for just £13 million this summer (Daily Mail) – an absolute bargain.

ESPN editor David Cartlidge described Fresneda as an ‘excellent’ player and a ‘very special talent’.

In 22 La Liga appearances for Valladolid last season, the 18-year-old averaged 2.2 tackles and two clearances per game (Who Scored). He really was hugely impressive whenever he took to the field for the Spaniards.

I would absolutely love Ivan Fresneda to join West Ham this summer.
