Mundo Deportivo reckon that the Hammers have ‘probed’ for the Barcelona left-back.
And what a signing he would be for the East London outfit.
David Moyes will be keen to address West Ham’s deficiencies in the left-back department this summer.
Junior Firpo enquiry lodged
Mundo Deportivo claim that the Hammers have made an enquiry for the 24-year-old Barca ace.
Aaron Cresswell has been in fine form this season but he will be 32 next year.
Arthur Masuaku, meanwhile, is more productive when playing in the left wing-back role.
The 27-year-old is unreliable from a fitness perspective as well.
Junior Firpo is exactly the kind of signing West Ham should be making.
He has been described as an outstanding player who excels in 1v1’s, both from an attacking and a defensive perspective (Total Football Analysis).
The Spaniard can operate with equal efficiency as both a left-back and a left wing-back.
Barcelona are in serious financial trouble. The La Liga outfit could sell Firpo for just £13 million according to Calcio Mercato.
That would be outstanding value for West Ham.
The Hammers need to make this one happen asap.
