West Ham United are allegedly keen to sign Watford left-back Hassane Kamara in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Express who claim that the 28-year-old is ‘attracting admirers’ from the Hammers.
Left-back is certainly an area at the London Stadium where West Ham boss David Moyes will be keen to strengthen in the summer.
Aaron Cresswell has been a very good servant for West Ham since arriving for £4 million from Ipswich back in 2014 (Mirror).
It is clear for everyone to see that the 32-year-old is regressing now though and is often targeted by opponents due to his poor defensive ability.
We’re not suggesting that Cresswell should be sold but some quality competition for his place would do him the world of good.
And it seems as though Moyes is on the look-out for an upgrade on Cresswell…
West Ham eyeing summer swoop for Hassane Kamara
The Express claims that the 28-year-old Watford left-back is on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window.
We firmly believe that there are plenty of better options out there for West Ham, including the likes of David Raum, Rico Henry and Aaron Hickey.
Kamara hasn’t been a bad player at all for the Hornets.
In 19 Premier League appearances for Watford this season, Kamara averaged 2.8 tackles, 3.6 interceptions and 3.2 clearances per match. He also won an average of 1.6 aerial duels per game (Who Scored).
Those stats are fairly impressive.
He stands at just 5ft 6in tall though. Moyes famously rejected the chance to sign Rico Henry from Brentford because he was too short. Henry is 5ft 7in tall.
Kamara doesn’t possess a very good delivery either and good ability from set-pieces should be a prerequisite for anyone who replaces Cresswell at the London Stadium.
West Ham should be targeting far better players than Hassane Kamara this summer in my opinion.
