West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to a rumour that Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger could be a transfer target for David Moyes.

The Hammers boss is expected to be a busy man in the January and summer transfer windows.

Most West Ham fans want at least one new striker signed and perhaps a left-back as well with Aaron Cresswell set to turn 32 next month.

It seems as though Moysie may well be eyeing up strengthen another position, however.

Hammers insiders Westhamfans.org reckon that the Scot is very interested in signing Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.

The 28-year-old is out of contract at Stamford Bridge in the summer and Thomas Tuchel may well be tempted to sell him for a nominal fee in January.

The 49-capped Germany international would be a sensational addition for West Ham.

Moyes will have his work cut-out if he does try to bring Rudiger to the London Stadium, however.

The Chelsea ace is set to be demanding close to £200k-a-week in wages.

Perhaps if he lowered his demands to around £150k-a-week it would be a transfer that would be feasible for the Hammers.

He will be available on a free in the summer after all. Even if we manage to pick him up for a bargain fee in January, we should be able to afford his wages.

 

Especially considering the fact that Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky is now on the board.
