West Ham United are allegedly interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Gini Wijnaldum this summer.
That’s according to a report from 90min who claim that the Hammers could face competition from Everton and Wolves for the 31-year-old ace’s signature in the summer transfer window.
West Ham manager David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Mark Noble has retired whilst Alex Kral will not stay on at the club after a really underwhelming loan spell in East London.
Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek are crying out for more competition in the middle of the park. And it seems as though Moyes has his eye set on someone with some real experience of playing at the very highest level…
West Ham eyeing Wijnaldum swoop
According to 90min, the 31-year-old PSG star is firmly on the Hammers’ radar this summer.
Firstly, we must say that signing Wijnaldum wouldn’t really fit into Moyes’s supposed Red Bull model transfer plan.
Having said that, sometimes it’s vital to add the odd bit of experience to your squad, and we believe that the Dutchman could be a really good addition for West Ham this summer.
Wijnladum left Liverpool to link up with Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer of 2021.
The 86-capped Holland international was truly world-class for Liverpool during the 2018/19 campaign and helped the Reds win the Champions League. He was brilliant once again the following season and played a key role for Liverpool during their Premier League winning campaign.
The experienced midfielder hasn’t really made any kind of impact at PSG, however, and has struggled for regular football under Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes, however.
So an exit from Paris could well be on the cards for the Dutchman in the summer. And we think he would be a superb addition for West Ham.
The former Liverpool midfielder possesses exceptional technical ability and he would offer David Moyes a completely different option in the middle of the park.
He could be available for around £21 million this summer according to Football Transfers.
Whether West Ham will be prepared to pay anything like that for Wijnaldum remains to be seen though.
