West Ham United are allegedly now keen to sign Feyenoord defender Marcos Senesi in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from 1908.NL who claim that the Hammers are set to challenge Bournemouth for the 25-year-old centre-back.
West Ham manager David Moyes is thought to be on the look-out for a new central defender after new signing Nayef Aguerd was ruled out for around eight weeks with a serious ankle injury.
The Scot does still have Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson to call upon but with the Italian only having recently returned from nine months on the sidelines, the addition of another central defender would certainly not go a miss.
And it seems as though that’s exactly what Moyes has in mind…
West Ham eyeing Marcos Senesi swoop
1908.NL reckon that the Hammers are set to go head-to-head with Bournemouth in the race to sign the Argentina international this summer.
The 25-year-old is available for just £12.5 million this summer (1908.NL).
That sounds like great value to us and we’d be more than happy is Senesi arrives at the London Stadium this summer.
The South American bagged two goals and two assists in 32 Eredivisie games for Feyenoord last season (Who Scored).
During those outings, the 25-year-old averaged 1.8 tackles, 1.6 interceptions, 2.3 clearances and 2.5 successful aerial duels per game (Who Scored).
He’s very good with the ball at his feet as well. Senesi made 67.1 passes on average per game last season and recorded an impressive completion rate of 85.1% (Who Scored).
The Argentinian ace is nicknamed ‘The Gladiator’ (TEAMtalk). So that bodes very well indeed, considering the ferocious pace, tempo and physical nature of Premier League football.
Wet think that Marcos Senesi would be a superb addition for West Ham this summer, especially for just £12.5 million.
Whether the Hammers are able to fight off competition from Bournemouth for his signature remains to be seen though.
