West Ham United will need to make additions in the summer if they are to improve on this season’s performances. Manuel Pellegrini’s side has struggled with consistency at times throughout the campaign, especially in the midfield and terms of creativity.
However, it appears one high-profile name is on the Hammers’ radar this summer who could potentially solve that problem and make them a real threat next year.
What’s the News?
According to a report by Gazzetta dello Sport, West Ham have joined in the race to sign Ivan Perisic this summer.
The Inter Milan attacker is thought to be keen on leaving the Serie A outfit and it said Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also thought to be interested in securing his services.
Perisic could be an outstanding acquisition for West Ham and could become another marquee signing for Pellegrini at the club, following in the footsteps of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko.
The 30-year-old helped Croatia to an incredible runners-up spot at last summer’s World Cup tournament and has consistently been hailed for his performances in Italy and Germany throughout his career.
He may not have had his best campaign to date for Inter, however, when he is at the top of his game, he is an excellent player that could certainly bring an attractive attacking style of play to the London Stadium outfit.
Perisic can run up and down the wings and has exceptional quality on the ball, as he is blessed with bundles of technique and stunning dribbling ability. He could be the man that helps the forward players with additional chances as he can create opportunities from almost nothing at times.
Given his age, it may be a risk for West Ham to take on him, however, he has shown that he still has all the traits to be an exceptional talent in the Premier League.
