According to a report from the Telegraph, West Ham are interested in signing Derby County full-back Jayden Bogle in January.

The Hammers are very short in the right-back department.

Pablo Zabaleta is set to leave in the summer, and the jury is still out on Ryan Fredericks.

Bogle would be an exceptional addition for West Ham. The 19-year-old is a real talent, and he will undoubtedly go on to be a star of the future.

The Rams starlet possesses blistering pace, and offers just as much going forward as he does defensively.

West Ham won’t have things all their own way in the race for Bogle, however.

The Telegraph claims that Crystal Palace, Brighton and Hove Albion and Burnley are also keen on the Derby ace.

 

In truth, however, the Hammers are by far the most exciting prospect out of any of those clubs.

The British newspaper claims that Bogle could be available for around £7 million, and in this day and age, that would represent excellent value for money for West Ham.

He would provide superb competition for Ryan Fredericks, and should help bring out the best in the former Fulham man.

Bogle is clearly one of the most exciting up-and-coming right-backs in the game.

And the Hammers must do everything within their power to bring the talented teen to the London Stadium in January.
