Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Fabian Balbuena has left West Ham on a free transfer whilst Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are on the wrong side of 33 and 31 respectively.

West Ham have been linked with moves to sign a whole host of centre-backs since the end of last season.

Quite who Moyes will end up bringing to the London Stadium remains to be seen, however.

West Ham still want Caleta-Car

Foot Mercato recently claimed that the Hammers are chasing the towering Croatia international.

And Ex shared the news last night that West Ham are in fact very keen:

We think that Caleta-Car would be a fine addition to David Moyes’s squad.

In 33 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille last season, the Croatian scored two goals and registered one assist. In those outings, the Croatian averaged 0.9 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and 3.9 clearances per game. He also won an average of 2.5 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).

The 24-year-old is available for just €15 million (£12.8 million) this summer according to a report from Foot Mercato.

That would be truly outstanding value for the Hammers.

Let’s just hope that we get this one done with the minimum of fuss.

Caleta-Car would be a superb signing for West Ham this summer.
