West Ham United could pose a real threat this season if they start to find their feet on a regular basis, with a very strong squad at Manuel Pellegrini’s disposal.
The Hammers made a very slow start to proceedings and haven’t really been able to recover enough to force their way up the table, with consistency still an issue. Although, it appears as if they’re pulling out all the stops to secure a transfer target, as according to D10 (via The Sun), West Ham hope Fabian Balbuena can help secure the services of Miguel Almiron.
West Ham hope new signing Fabian Balbuena can help them beat London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal for the signature of MLS ace Miguel Almiron.
The Paraguayan is in hot demand having netted 12 times and contributed 13 assists this year in the MLS.
Indeed, with Arsenal and Spurs reportedly circling, it’s understood that West Ham are using their target’s Paraguay team-mate to convince him to sign for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
Miguel Almiron has plenty of potential and has already displayed his quality over in the MLS, with a move to the Premier League being just rewards for his efforts so far.
Indeed, Fabian Balbuena is the Hammers’ biggest chance of securing the services of the promising South American, with Spurs and Arsenal offering European football.
