Premier League

The £15.3m-rated international centre back who would be ideal for West Ham

West Ham will be looking forward to getting this season over and done with after a disappointing campaign under Slaven Bilic which has seen more negatives than positives on the whole. 

The Hammers have had a poor season by their standards set last season, and it looks like being a massive summer ahead in terms of adding to the squad and moving on any dead wood who are not adding anything to the squad at the London Stadium.

West Ham fans are always here in the Tavern in their droves, and this past week has been no different, with the summer window hot on their topics of discussion.

Our landlord has been having a good old chat with the Hammers fans over by the pinball machine here in the Tavern though, and one name he has run by the fans is Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, who is valued at £15.3m by Transfermarkt.

The big Swedish defender has been a standout performer in Portugal for Benfica, and at 22-years-old, has plenty of time to improve even further and really cement himself as one of the world’s best defenders.

West Ham need to add some more steel to their back line, and the addition of someone like Lindelof could be a welcome signing at the London Stadium.

Lindelof has the ability to mark strikers completely out of games, and he would appear to have everything needed to become a top Premier League defender should he make the move to England this year.

Hammers fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know your thoughts!
