West Ham could make yet another attempt to sign Club Brugge midfielder Hans Vanaken in January according to a report from Voetbal 24.
The Hammers have been heavily linked with a move to sign the giant 29-year-old over the past year or so.
He ended up staying with Club Brugge of course, but an exit could now be on the cards.
Vanaken would only leave the Belgian outfit for a club who are challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.
Following Club Brugge’s exit from the Champions League, it seems as though the 29-year-old midfielder could move on in January.
West Ham to move in for Hans Vanaken in January?
Voetbal 24 claims that Vanaken could be sold in January with the Hammers weighing up a bid for the 29-year-old.
In fact, it is suggested that the Club Brugge ace is attracted by a potential move to the London Stadium.
The Belgian has bagged eight goals and four assists in 24 games for Club Brugge this season (Transfermarkt). He racked up 16 goals and seven assists in 45 games last term.
Not bad for an attacking midfielder eh?!
Vanaken is a very good player and would be a useful addition for West Ham, especially given the fact that he is 6ft 5in tall! He could be available for around £13 million according to Sky Sports.
Let’s be realistic here though. Moyes will be prioritising the signings of a top-class striker and an established, quality centre-back in the January transfer window.
Jesse Lingard will feature very high up on Moyes’s January wish-list as well.
And for that reason, we just can’t see Vanaken heading to West Ham in January.
