The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern desperately want to see their defence improve next season…
The Hammers’ back line has struggled this season, and whilst Jose Fonte was signed in January, the Portuguese defender has done very little to improve the defence.
Certainly, West Ham have had issues up and down the pitch, but their defensive frailties were exposed against Chelsea earlier this week, and ahead of next season – Bilic must act.
That is exactly what the Croation is seemingly planning, too, with Le10 Sport reporting that the Hammers are set to renew their interest in Kevin Malcuit – with a summer move potentially on the cards.
Interestingly, the French publication note that a ‘big offer’ will be required – so it remains to be seen whether Bilic’s side will be able to afford the defender.
Malcuit is a full-back by trade, and has impressed on the right-hand side of the Saint Etienne defence. Though naturally offensive, he is strong defensively too – and would certainly add some much-needed steel to the West Ham defence. A versatile player, he has played at right-back, right midfield and even in the heart of the midfield so far this season.
