David Moyes clearly wants to provide more cover and competition for Aaron Cresswell at left-back.

The 31-year-old has been brilliant of late. That doesn’t mean that Moyes shouldn’t be trying to bring in more adequate competition for him, however.

And Tagliafico would be a quite sensational signing for West Ham.

The 28-year-old is a vastly experienced defender. He has played at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.

The Argentina international has racked up 13 goals and 19 assists in 141 appearances for Ajax (Transfermarkt).

In 25 Eredivisie outings last season, Tagliafico racked up three goals and four assists. He averaged 2.5 tackles, 1.7 interceptions and 2.1 clearances per game. He averaged 52.6 passes per game with an impressive completion rate of 85.9% (Who Scored).
