The Udinese ace has been on the Hammers’ radar according to Sky Sports.

He is now set to join Galatasary for around £3.5 million, however.

The 30-year-old impressed for Denmark at EURO 2020 playing all of his country’s six games in the competition.

West Ham are well covered at right-back, however.

David Moyes has Vladimir Coufal, Ryan Fredericks and Ben Johnson to choose from at the London Stadium.

 

So signing a right-back would have been a strange move given our desperate need for reinforcements in other positions.

West Ham missing out on Jens Stryger Larsen no big deal

David Moyes quite simply has more pressing concerns this summer.

The Hammers boss needs to sign a centre-forward, a central midfielder, a centre-back and Jesse Lingard or an alternative like Matheus Pereira as a matter of priority.

Jens Stryger Larsen is a decent player. He’s just not someone who we need to sign this summer, however.

The 30-year-old will undoubtedly be a hit at Galatasaray but West Ham need to be setting their sights a lot higher.

£3.5 million is an undoubted bargain for the Dane. We won’t lose any sleep having missed out on him, however.
