West Ham need to accelerate Attila Szalai interest after scintillating Euro 2020 displays

West Ham are expected to make a move to sign Fenerbahce centre-back Attila Szalai after Euro 2020 this summer according to NTV Spor.

The defender’s brilliant performances for Hungary at the Euros means that the Hammers need to put their interest in him in express lane, however.

The 23-year-old has really stood out this summer when playing at the heart of his country’s defence.

Szalai especially impressed against France during match-day 2 of Euro 2020 against the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann.

The physically imposing Fenerbahce centre-back seems to be tailor made for the Premier League.

West Ham need to accelerate move to sign Attila Szalai

The 23-year-old is allegedly available for around £21 million this summer (A Spor).

If he continues to shine at the Euros, however, there will surely be plenty more clubs interested in signing him.

And the centre-back’s price-tag may well shoot skywards too.

Signing Szalai will be a key move for David Moyes this summer.

Central defensive reinforcements needed

Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are 33 and 31 respectively whilst Fabian Balbuena has left the London Stadium on a free transfer.

West Ham need to add more quality and experience to their back-line and the caveat is that youth needs to be on their side.

Hopefully West Ham get a deal done for the towering Hungarian asap. Szalai is exactly the kind of signing Moyes should be making.
