Former Hammer Don Hutchison recently revealed he recommended French midfielder Cuisance to West Ham three years ago.

Cuisance, 20, broke into the Bayern first team this season.

“I recommended him to West Ham 2/3 years ago,” Hutchison said on Twitter when Cuisance got his big chance to start for Bayern last month.

Bayern star recommended to West Ham is available for loan

At the time Cuisance was at Borussia Monchengladbach and ended up joining Bayern for just £8million.

But now a new report from France claims Bayern are ready to loan out Cuisance in the next window.

According to Foot Mercato newly promoted to Ligue 1 side RC Lens have made a bold attempt to sign the 20-year-old French youth international.

The report claims Marseille, Metz and Rennes are all also interested in a possible loan. The report claims it is unlikely Lens will win the race to sign Cuisance.

But the fact the midfielder is being made available for loan could well alert West Ham.

 

The Hammers have been at pains to make clear that money will be tight in the next window as a result of the global health crisis.

Loan with option would be ideal for cash-strapped Hammers

So the chance to land a player like Cuisance – who fits David Moyes’s recruitment policy to sign young, hungry talents – on loan with a possible option would surely appeal to West Ham.

Particularly with West Ham on the hunt for new central midfielders given Mark Noble looks to have reached the end of his era as an automatic starter.

Ex West Ham midfielder Hutchison, who played 100 times for the club over two spells,  has a keen eye for a player in his role as a pundit working across Europe’s top leagues.

He has been a pundit since his retirement and has spent several years commentating on Ligue 1, Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A matches.

Hutchinson knows what West Ham supporters want and expect from a player.

Hutch’s previous player advice to West Ham fell on deaf ears

But it is not the first time one of Hutchison’s recommendations has fallen on deaf ears.

Last summer Hutch told West Ham fans he has tried and failed to flag up players to owners David Sullivan and David Gold in the past but they ‘don’t listen’.

“They don’t listen mate,” Hutchison replied to a West Ham fan who suggested he give Sullivan ‘some gems’.

He continued: “They all have analysis guys who feed them all the numbers!”
