Axel Tuanzebe is set to ask for a loan move away from Manchester United according to ESPN and West Ham should be all over this one.
The 23-year-old allegedly doesn’t envisage much playing time at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season.
Therefore, he wants a loan move away in order to ensure that he plays regularly (ESPN).
And with Hammers boss David Moyes keen to bolster his centre-back ranks at the London Stadium, a loan move for Tuanzebe would make perfect sense.
It would be great if we could include an option top buy into the terms of the deal too!
Axel Tuanzebe demanding Manchester United loan exit should arouse West Ham interest
The 23-year-old Man United defender wants a temporary exit from Old Trafford according to ESPN.
And the Hammers shouldn’t hesitate to bring Tuanzebe to the London Stadium.
The young centre-back has exceptional talent and he proved it during a stunning display away at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last season.
Manchester United won that game 2-1 and their victory was largely down to the 23-year-old’s brilliant defending.
Tuanzebe possesses impressive pace, is strong in the air and the tackle and has the ability to play on the front foot.
His lack of game-time over the last few years will undoubtedly be somewhat of a concern for the West Ham fans. He is a naturally fit lad, however. And a run of consistent games for the Hammers should bring the best out in him.
With funds tight at the London Stadium, a loan move to sign Tuanzebe seems like an absolute no-brainer.
In fact, it would be the ideal solution for all parties involved. West Ham would be getting a very good player, Tuanzebe himself would have the chance to play regularly and Manchester United would then be able to see whether he is good enough to play consistently in the Premier League.
