West Ham United will need to move quickly if we want to sign Luiz Felipe from Real Betis this summer.
Craig Dawson was sold in January whilst Angelo Ogbonna is now 35. However, West Ham will need to act fast if Felipe is the man who Moyes wants…
Club are growing tired with West Ham after ‘promised £17 million bid’ for Luiz Felipe
The Hammers had better move for Felipe quickly if Moyes really wants him, or Betis may move on all together.
In 23 La Liga outings for Betis last season, Felipe averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 4.3 clearances and 1.3 successful aerial duels per game (Who Scored).
He is incredibly solid in the air and tenacious in the tackle. He plays with real aggression and passion, and he would undoubtedly be a big fan favourite at the London Stadium.
However, he isn’t the best with the ball at his feet, and his injury record makes for rather worrying reading.
In my opinion, there are a lot better options out there for the Hammers this summer.
For example, I would much prefer to see West Ham sign Taylor Harwood-Bellis from Manchester City rather than Luiz Felipe.
And as far as I’m concerned, the Hammers missing out on the 26-year-old Italy international this summer really wouldn’t be the end of the world.
