West Ham United could sign Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino for just €8 million (£6.8 million) this summer according to a report from Calciomercato.
The 29-year-old has allegedly been transfer lister by the Serie A giants (Calciomercato).
The Hammers actually made an offer to sign the 41-capped Uruguay international in January according to Calcio Mercato. That obviously got rejected by Inter, however.
The 29-year-old hasn’t been at his best over the past six months. He has made just one appearance for Inter all season.
Vecino is still a top class player, however, and his playing style is quintessentially South American.
He is a tenacious tackler and plays with real energy and intensity. In other words, the 29-year-old is perfectly suited to the robust nature of the Premier League.
West Ham could secure themselves a bargain by signing Matias Vecino
Matias Vecino can play in the deep-lying central midfield role, in a more orthodox central position or even as a number 10.
The Uruguayan ace would be a very smart addition for West Ham. Especially for just £6.8 million.
Sure, David Moyes has repeatedly suggested that he wants to bring young, hungry and talented players to the London Stadium.
Sometimes you need to add some quality experience to your ranks as well, however.
Matias Vecino certainly fits into that category.
And there are a lot worse signings that the Hammers could make this summer.
The Uruguayan would provide quality competition and cover for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.
This is a deal that West Ham shouldn’t think twice about. £6.8 million is excellent value for Vecino. Get it done Moysie!
