Steven Bergwijn could be yet another big signing for West Ham United

Steven Bergwijn could be yet another big signing for West Ham United

West Ham fans will be over the moon to see Felipe Anderson lighting up the Premier League in recent weeks.

The Hammer smashed their transfer record to lure the talented Brazilian to the Premier League from Lazio in the summer. After a shaky start to life in England, Anderson quickly found his feet and proved his worth to Manuel Pellegrini. Another brace against Southampton meant the winger has scored seven goals in his past nine games after netting only once during his first ten appearances.

Three points against the Saints is massive for West Ham giving their injury troubles at the moment. Despite investing heavily in the squad during the summer, Pellegrini was only able to name six substitutes due to the number of absentees at the moment. Their injury crisis should force the former Manchester City manager into the transfer market to add some depth to his ranks.

The man who should top his shortlist is PSV Eindhoven winger – Steven Bergwijn. Valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old has emerged as one of the top prospects in Holland after flourishing in the first-team alongside Hirving Lozano. Bergwijn was crucial to PSV’s successful title bid last season, scoring eight and registering seven assists for his team-mates in the Eredivisie.

The youngster has continued his fantastic form in the current campaign, finding the back of the net nine times already as well as creating seven goals for his team-mates. Bergwijn possesses electrifying pace and dribbling ability to give Premier League defenders nightmares. His eye for goal and vision show maturity beyond his years and make him perfect for life in England.

Luring the Dutch winger to London in January could give the Hammers the boost they need to secure a return to Europe in May.
