West Ham United are allegedly keen to sign Bologna midfielder Mattias Svanberg in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Sport Mediaset who claims that the Hammers could face competition from Everton for the 23-year-old Swede’s signature at the end of this season.
Manchester City and Tottenham managers Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte are apparently keen on acquiring the young Swede’s services as well (Sempre Milan).
Central midfield is certainly an area where West Ham manager David Moyes needs to strengthen in the summer.
Mark Noble is set to hang up his boots at the end of the season whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow having failed to impress at the London Stadium.
It seems as though Moyes has a plan up his sleeve to add some real quality to his engine room in the transfer window this summer…
West Ham transfer window swoop for Mattias Svanberg on the cards
Sport Mediaset claims that West Ham and Everton could be set for a summer battle for the 18-capped Sweden international’s signature.
We think that Svanberg would be a very smart addition for the Hammers, if Moyes does manage to bring him to the London Stadium in the transfer window.
Svanberg has bagged three goals and two assists one 29 Serie A games for Bologna so far this season (Transfermarkt).
During those appearances, the 23-year-old has averaged 1.2 tackles and 0.9 interceptions per match. He has made 29.6 passes per game and has recorded a completion rate of 76% (Who Scored).
He is a defensive midfielder by trade but has exceptional technical ability as well.
Sempre Milan recently claimed that the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham and Milan are keen to sign the €20 million (£17 million) rated midfielder as well. So West Ham will not have things all our own way in the summer transfer window chase for Svanberg’s signature.
The Bologna ace has been described as an ‘incredible midfielder’ by Premier League News.
Standing at 6ft 1in tall, Svanberg cuts an imposing figure and seems to possess all of the physical attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League.
If West Ham sign the Sweden international for just £17 million, we think it would be a great value for money signing for the East London outfit.
