West Ham transfer news In this article we will bring you all of today’s West Ham transfer news. Make sure to check back to the site for more daily transfer updates throughout the rest of this month.
Lingard alternative lined up With the final week of the window now upon us, West Ham look to be eyeing an alternative to Jesse Lingard.
According to the Telegraph, West Ham are lining up former Everton midfielder Nikola Vlasic as a potential alternative to Jesse Lingard.
After a fairly unsuccessful spell with Everton, he was shipped off to CSKA Moscow on loan and then permanently in July of 2019.
The 23-year-old has since featured 107 times for the Russian outfit, scoring 33 and assisting 21 in that time.
There is no potential fee mentioned for Vlasic.
Hammers in talks over French forward Elsewhere, West Ham look to be eyeing a move for a centre-forward, which makes sense given Michail Antonio is currently their only recently decent option in that spot.
And, according to Ekrem Konur, West ham have begun talks with Montpellier for Gaetan Laborde.
Laborde would score 16 and assist eight in 38 Ligue 1 ties last term and has so far netted two in three during 2021/22:
