Franco Vazquez is the most recent player to be linked with a move to Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham side, by Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, but who is he?
The Italian ace is currently a regular starter in a Sevilla side that sit pretty at the top of the Liga Santander. In terms of his play style, Vazquez isn’t known for his pace, which means no upgrades to a midfield that is already faltering in that department. Instead, he employs exceptional creative artistry, and an eye for goal, to stand out from the crowd – providing three goals and three assists for the club this campaign.
It’s certainly a move that would benefit the club, given their questionable offensive presence in recent years, so don’t be surprised to see this one materialise come 2019.
With West Ham evidently looking to break away from its previous lull in form, both on and off the pitch, we look at two other potential signings that would really show they mean business…
As reported by Calciomercato, current Roma striker Edin Dzeko is set to make a return to the Premier League. Although he isn’t getting any younger at 32-years-of-age, the addition of the Bosnian forward would really boost the Hammers’ offensive line for the next few seasons. Every football fan is aware of what the striker can provide; a physical presence in the box, unrivalled finesse, and a style of play that seemingly gets better with age.
Ultimately, we expect that the existing relationship between the player and Pellegrini, who worked together at Manchester City, and the emergence of Patrik Schick as Roma’s starting forward, which has seen Dzeko’s playtime reduced significantly, will see this transfer done in 2019.
Cahill has enjoyed some excellent times over the years at Chelsea, amassing trophy collection including: one Champions League, two Premier League titles, two FA Cup medals, one English League Cup, and one Europa League. However, with Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, and David Luiz all being preferred over him in the starting lineup, it appears that his time at the club is all but over.
On the move, The Mirror seem to be under the impression that Cahill’s preferred location would be the London Stadium. The transfer certainly makes sense from both perspectives, given that he wants first-team minutes and that West Ham have only kept one clean sheet in eight games.Like what the TT have on offer?
