Hammers boss David Moyes is clearly keen to bring a left-back to the London Stadium before the transfer window slams shut.

Aaron Cresswell has been brilliant for West Ham over the past 12 months or so.

With Arthur Masuaku’s knee problem continuing to cause concerns, however, the addition of another left-back/wing-back would be a wise move by Moyes today.

And it seems as though the Scot has his sights set on a potential new arrival in the left-back department.

West Ham still hoping to get Pellegrini deal done

The 22-year-old Juventus ace is a loan target for the Hammers according to a report from Tuttosport.

And the East London outfit are allegedly still hopeful of getting a loan deal done for the Italian.

Pellegrini would be an excellent addition for West Ham.

The 22-year-old joined Juventus from Roma in 2019 for around £18.6 million (SI Soccer).

Pellegrini has bags of pace, is an able defender and offers a lot going forward as well.

He spent the last two seasons on loan with Genoa and Cagliari respectively and impressed with both teams.

He would provide stiff competition and adequate cover for Aaron Cresswell at West Ham.

If West Ham do manage to sign Pellegrini on loan it will be excellent business for the club. Let’s hope that we include an option to buy in any kind of deal, however.
