Anderson and Yarmolenko done: Pellegrini must now add Laxalt to West Ham’s attack

West Ham have done fantastic work this transfer window by strengthening the majority of their squad with quality additions. 

In particular, Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko are exciting signings who will add a new dimension to West Ham’s attack.

And as far as more possible incomings go, things could be about to get even better for the Hammers.

The Breakdown

According to Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, West Ham are negotiating with Serie A outfit Genoa for Diego Laxalt.

The Hammers are said to have had an opening bid rejected for Laxalt, but remain in talks for the 25-year-old.

In Serie A, Laxalt has developed into a very dangerous winger with his excellent dribbling ability and tremendous pace.

In his position, he is one of the most exciting players to watch and could develop even further under Manuel Pellegrini.

If the former Manchester City boss opts to use Marko Arnautovic as a striker for the upcoming season, then Laxalt could line up on the left with Anderson in the middle and Yarmolenko on the right in a 4-2-3-1 one of Pellegrini’s preferred formations.

Laxalt could add a few more goals to his game, but his performances at the World Cup with Uruguay are enough to get West Ham supporters ecstatic over any potential signing.

If Pellegrini still wants to add to his attack, then Laxalt is definitely a good option to consider.
