According to recent reports, West Ham United are interested in making a move for Milton Keynes Dons defender, Matthew Sorinola.
Making his debut for MK Dons in the EFL Cup earlier this season, Sorinola has gone on to feature 17 times in all competitions for Russell Martin’s side, chipping in with one goal and providing two assists along the way.
And it would appear the left-back, who has also been deployed on the right and left-hand side of midfield, has highly impressed in his debut season for MK Dons, with TEAMtalk reporting that Premier League sides West Ham, Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace, as well as Championship sides Brentford, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough, have all been keeping tabs on the 19-year-old.

Transfer Tavern Take
Despite the fact that West Ham are already quite well-stocked at left-back, with both Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Cresswell being able to operate from that position, it could be argued that, considering Sorinola has operated in a more attacking position for MK Dons, should the Hammers make a move for the 19-year-old, he could be fielded from left wing-back.
And, with Cresswell being played more often on the left of a back three, Sorinola could potentially provide Masuaku with back-up and competition for a place at LWB in Moyes’ starting XI – the Frenchman just had surgery so Sorinola could even be a direct replacement in the short term.
As such, while it is still early in his career, a move for Sorinola could make sense for the Hammers, and is a potential transfer that we will be keeping a very close eye on as the January window edges closer.
