West Ham and Wolves are set for a transfer battle for Espanyol winger Adrian Embarba this summer according to a report from Spanish publication Sport.
Hammers boss David Moyes has plenty of pressing matters to address this summer.
The Scot needs to sign two centre-forwards, a central midfielder, a left-back, a centre-back and a goalkeeper.
A quiet couple of months ahead for West Ham in the transfer market then!
One area where the Hammers are fairly well covered is the wide attacking department.
Should Andriy Yarmolenko and/or Felipe Anderson leave the London Stadium this summer however, the addition of another winger may well be needed.
West Ham and Wolves transfer battle for Adrian Embarba?
Spanish publication Sport claims that the Hammers and Wolves could be set to battle it out for the 29-year-old Espanyol winger’s signature this summer.
This may well be one that we should just let Wolves get on with.
The wisdom behind signing a 29-year-old winger who has never played in the Premier League before would be questionable to say the least.
Embarba did record some very impressive numbers last season with nine goals and 14 assists to his name in 36 games (Transfermarkt).
The Spaniard was playing in Spain’s second division, however. So some context is definitely required.
West Ham have a number pressing priorities this summer.
Signing a new winger certainly shouldn’t be one of them.
We would have no problem at all if Wolves beat us in this particular battle.
