West Ham United are said to be battling it out with Arsenal and Nottingham Forest for the signing of Alexander Bah this summer.

According to a report from Tipsbladet, the 25-year-old Benfica right-back is firmly on the radars of West Ham, Arsenal and Forest in the summer transfer window.

Hammers boss David Moyes definitely needs to sign a top-class right-back this summer in order to provide proper competition for Vladimir Coufal.

The addition of a younger full-back with plenty of pace and power is required at the London Stadium. And it seems like Bah could be the man for the job…

West Ham in for 25-year-old right-back Alexander Bah for a minimum of £26m

Tipsbladet claim that the Hammers are one of three Premier League clubs chasing the Dane.

In fact, West Ham are said to be ‘leading’ the race for the 25-year-old’s signature this summer.

I think that Bah would be a terrific signing for the Hammers, I really do.

He bagged one goal and four assists in 28 league appearances for Benfica last season and averged 2.1 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game (Who Scored).

Alexander Bah is very fast indeed, is a strong tackler and has bundles of energy and stamina. He’d be a superb signing for West Ham.

Whether the owners are prepared to pay £26 million for his signature remains to be seen though.
