West Ham United: Irons still interested in James Tarkowski

West Ham United: Irons still interested in James Tarkowski -Follow up

West Ham United are still interested in signing Burnley defender James Tarkowski, according to Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.

The Lowdown: West Ham’s previous interest

The Hammers have a long-standing interest in the 29-year-old. According to The Guardian, West Ham had multiple bids rejected by Burnley for the defender in summer 2020. It is reported that the east London club’s final offer amounted to a staggering £30m.

However, the centre-back’s contract is now set to expire in a couple of months. As a result, Tarkwoski has been linked with a number of moves away from Turf Moor.

The Latest: Brown’s claim on Tarkowski…

Brown believes that there is a ‘huge possibility’ that the defender could join David Moyes’ squad on a free transfer in the summer.

Speaking with GiveMeSport, he claimed: “I don’t think the Tarkowski interest [from West Ham] has gone away. Obviously, they could be in another division and forced to sell in the summer. I think there’s a huge possibility that that deal could still happen.”

The Verdict: Good prospective signing

Once labelled by his Burnley boss Sean Dyche as “outstanding”, Tarkowski would certainly appear to be a great addition to Moyes’ West Ham squad, given the club’s struggles with availability in the centre-back position over the course of this season.

According to FBRef, the 29-year-old ranks in the 99th percentile for blocks, clearances and aerial duels won among defenders in Europe’s top five leagues, illustrating his no-nonsense nature as a defender.

Therefore, with this phenomenal quality available on a free transfer, GSB securing Tarkowski could prove to be an amazing piece of business for the Hammers if it gets done.
