West Ham back in for Tarkowski

Claret and Hugh reckon that the Hammers could be set to reignite their interest in the Burnley ace with just 12 months remaining on his current deal with the Lancashire club.

And now Football Insider reckon that Tarkowski is very keen to join West Ham.

On paper Tarkowski, who earns £50k-a-week (Spotrac) would be a fine addition.

The Burnley ace reportedly didn’t want to move down south last summer, however. So it does seem rather convenient that after West Ham secured European football, his opinion on the matter seems to have changed!

Tarkowski does seem to be an ideal Moyes signing, however. He is big, strong, commanding in the air and relishes a physical battle with opposing strikers.

If Burnley don’t ask for silly money, the 28-year-old defender will be a wise addition for West Ham this summer.
