According to a report from Yeni Asir, West Ham boss David Moyes is interested in bringing Gent attacking midfielder Giorgi Chakvetadze to the London Stadium this summer. The 20-year-old could be a star of the future. And has reportedly attracted attention from Barcelona and Tottenham in the past.

The Hammers have the foundations of a very strong midfield with Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek sitting in front of the back four.

They could do with more creativity, however, to help support the likes of Pablo Fornals and Manuel Lanzini in the final third.

So the addition of another attacking midfielder might just feature highly on Moyes’s agenda.

Yeni Asir claims that West Ham could make a move for Gent ace Giorgi Chakvetadze in order to add some creativity and flair to their attacking department.

The Hammers could face competition from Roma for the youngster’s signature, however.


The Georgia international is an attacking midfielder by trade and is most comfortable when deployed in the number 10 role. Although he can also play out on either wing.

The 20-year-old has racked up two assists in 12 games for Gent so far this season (Transfermarkt).

According to Futbol Grad, Chakvetadze has been scouted on numerous occasions by Barcelona. Sport Globe claimed that Tottenham wanted to sign him as well back in 2018. So the youngster clearly has a lot of talent.

Bringing the 20-year-old to the London Stadium would be a signing made with one eye on the future.

Yeni Asir claims that the Georgian could be available for just £5.3 million this summer.

And that might just prove to be an absolute bargain for West Ham, if Moyes does indeed manage to bring the talented youngster to east London this summer.
