West Ham are allegedly targeting a move to sign Roma right-back Bryan Reynolds this summer.
According to a report from The Athletic, Roma ace Bryan Reynolds is on the radar of West Ham ahead of the summer transfer window.
Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to add some more youth and pace to his right full-back options.
Vladimir Coufal will be 31 by the time the new season begins, whilst Ben Johnson appears to be heading out the door at the London Stadium.
And it seems as though Moyes has someone specific in mind for the job…
West Ham targeting move to sign Roma starlet Bryan Reynolds
The Athletic claim that the 21-year-old is expected to leave Roma this summer, having spent the 2022/23 season on loan with Belgian side Westerlo.
I think that Reynolds could be a really smart long-term investment from the Hammers.
The youngster joined Roma from FC Dallas in 2021 for around £6 million (Dallas Morning News). And despite not featuring much for the Italian giants, he has impressed during loan spells away from the Italian capital.
In 27 league appearances for Westerlo this season, the young American has bagged one goal and two assists and has averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 1.4 clearances per game. During those outings, he has made 38.4 passes per match and has recorded a completion rate of 81.8% (Who Scored).
Chiesa Di Totti describe the American starlet as an ‘exceptional’ young player. Standing at 6ft 3in, he has great height for a full-back, so is really strong in the air, but is very quick along the ground as well.
Quite how much Roma will demand for Bryan Reynolds remains to be seen but the fact that they’re so keen to move him on means that West Ham will surely be able to pick him up for a fairly reasonable fee.
I think this will be one to get excited about, if it does indeed happen this summer.
