West Ham eyeing experienced PL defender in bid to address weaknesses

Our West Ham fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see their right back area addressed in this window and, according to Sky Sports, they might get their wish through Glen Johnson.

Whilst the Hammers have struggled up top for goals this season they have also really had issues down the right side of their defence, with no player being able to nail that position down.

Many here in the bar think they need to go and get a right back in this window, then, and that looks like it could happen with the current Stoke City defender.

Johnson has had a pretty distinguished career with spells at Liverpool and Chelsea also on his CV as well as a decent time in being England’s first choice right back.

He’s not the player he was back then, of course, but can still do a solid job and that might be enough to tempt the Hammers into sealing a deal.

Whether or not Stoke let him go remains to be seen, as our landlord reckons he is an important part of their side.

Would you take Johnson, Hammers fans? Let us know below!
