Major West Ham blow as report claims Tottenham could try to sign 23-year-old in January

West Ham United allegedly could face competition from Tottenham Hotspur for Sassuolo ace Davide Frattesi in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport who claim that both Tottenham and Brighton have joined the Hammers in the race for the 23-year-old midfielder’s signature in January.

It was claimed back in the summer that West Ham boss David Moyes made an official approach to bring Frattesi to the London Stadium in the summer transfer window.

The West Ham and Tottenham target is believed to be valued at around €25 million (£22 million), according to Sempre Inter.

Both David Moyes and Antonio Conte will both be keen to bolster their respective central midfield ranks in January.

And it seems as though they both could be battling it out for the same player…

West Ham face Tottenham competition for Davide Frattesi in January

The three-capped Italy international is on the radars of both the Hammers and Spurs ahead of the January transfer window, according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport.

We believe that the Sassuolo ace would be an exceptional addition for either West Ham or Tottenham.

He is an orthodox central midfielder by trade but he can also operate in the number 10 position.

The 22-year-old bagged four goals and three assists in 36 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo last season (Who Scored).

During those outings, Frattesi averaged 1.3 tackles, one interception and 1.3 clearances per game (Who Scored).

The Italian ace made 34 passes on average per match and recorded an impressive 83.7% completion rate (Who Scored).

Frattesi is an incredibly good footballer with impressive technical ability, a fine engine and an attitude of the very highest level.

We would absolutely love to see the Italian arrive at the London Stadium.

Unfortunately for West Ham though, Tottenham are chasing Frattesi’s signature ahead of the January transfer window as well.

And considering these two clubs’ contrasting fortunes at the moment, there may only be one winner in that race.
