West Ham United reportedly want to sign Hoffenheim left-back David Raum in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from German media outlet Sport BILD and relayed by Sport Witness.

Left-back is definitely an area at the London Stadium where Hammers boss David Moyes will want to strengthen in the summer.

Left-back Aaron Cresswell has been a great servant for West Ham and he is still a vital member of Moyes’s squad.

It must be said though, the 32-year-old’s defending is suspect at times and an upgrade for the future should certainly be on Moyes’s agenda.

It seems as though that’s exactly what the scot has planned…

West Ham eyeing Hoffenheim left-back

Sport BILD claims that Hoffenheim ace David Raum is firmly on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window.

It is alleged that the Bundesliga side will demand around €30 million (£25 million) for the 24-year-old Germany international.

Whilst Aaron Cresswell has been in decent form for West Ham this season, we truly believe that the Hoffenheim defender would be a huge upgrade on the 32-year-old.

Raum has been in absolutely sensational form for Hoffenheim so far this season.

He has three goals and 13 assists to his name in 30 Bundesliga games (Transfermarkt). Not bad for a left-back eh!

The German is powerfully built and possesses impressive pace.

At 24, Raum is not even in the prime of his career. And he seems at the ideal stage to make the jump up from the Bundesliga to the Premier League.

£25 million for the Hoffenheim ace seems like very good value to us. The 24-year-old embodies everything that being a modern-day full-back is all about.

And we would absolutely love to see the left-back at West Ham next season. Whether the Hammers owners will be prepared to pay the £25 million required to obtain his services remains to be seen though.
