West Ham are in talks to sign Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet on loan according to a claim from football journalist Ekrem Konur.
And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
Central defence is certainly an area where West Ham boss David Moyes needs to strengthen this summer.
Fabian Balbuena has already left the London Stadium whilst Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are 33 and 31 respectively.
Meanwhile, the jury is still out on Issa Diop.
Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet would undoubtedly be a useful addition to Moyes’s ranks this summer.
The Frenchman is very confident in possession of the football.
In 33 La Liga appearances for Barca last season, the 26-year-old averaged 1.1 tackles, one interception and two clearances per game. He also won an average of 1.8 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).
Lenglet made 69.7 passes per game on average during those outings and recorded a superb completion rate of 92.1% (Who Scored).
