The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern hope more than ever that this summer can be used to really sort their club out, from top to bottom.
Life at West Ham couldn’t really get much worse right now and although it’s improved in recent weeks, their defence has been one of the biggest problems in a mistake-ridden season. Whoever the West Ham manager may be next season if not David Moyes, needs to drastically improve their back-line with a player like Arsenal’s Rob Holding, who is valued at £6.3 million on Transfermarkt.
Arsenal are set for a summer clearout of their own which could see a defender like Rob Holding without a role to play in the team. The Englishman has shown potential of being a top defender for the Gunners in his 27 appearances so far this season but with Arsenal way off the top four, they need to bring in world-class players in order to re-establish themselves as a team capable of challenging for Champions League qualification at least.
West Ham have found many problems this year within their team, causing relegation fears to be a real concern until only a few games ago.
The Hammers, on paper, have the makings of a top 10 side in the top flight but things just really haven’t turned out well, prompting the need for big change this summer. Rob Holding is a player well thought of at Arsenal, having recently signed a new deal, and would be a hard deal to pull off for West Ham considering it is reliant on Arsenal spending a lot of money to make his position in the side redundant.
However, he’d certainly be worth it, both now and in the long run.
