Report: West Ham could reignite interest in Rasmus Kristensen

According to a report from Football.London, West Ham boss David Moyes could reignite a move for RB Salzburg right-back Rasmus Kristensen in the summer.

The Hammers were allegedly interested in signing the 22-year-old defender in January, according to a report from Football.London.

West Ham boss Moyes will surely be looking to bolster his right-back department in the summer.

Ryan Fredericks has been extremely disappointing since making his summer switch to the London Stadium in the summer of 2018. The 27-year-old has been unreliable from a fitness perspective as well.

Jermey Ngakia has impressed, and Ben Johnson is retuning from injury, but the Hammers shouldn’t put too much pressure on the two youngsters too soon.

Football.London claims that West Ham could go back in for Kristensen when the transfer window opens.


The 22-year-old has made 17 appearances for RB Salzburg this season, racking up one assist in the process.

He moved to the Austrian club from Ajax in the summer, where he was part of the squad that won the Eredivisie title.

The Dane is a solid defender, as the following stats highlight. In six Champions League appearances this term, he has averaged 3.3 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 3.2 clearances and 0.5 blocks (Who Scored).

Whether RB Salzburg will be prepared to sell Kristensen in the summer, however, remains to be seen.

But it would be no surprise to see West Ham test the Austrian outfit’s resolve.
