West Ham: Fans excited following Tiemoue Bakayoko links

West Ham: Fans excited following Tiemoue Bakayoko links - West Ham

As the summer transfer window is around the corner, West Ham have been linked with numerous players leaving and joining the club, and the latest transfer news has excited a lot of the fan base.

According to a report from French publication Le 10 Sport, the Hammers will look to acquire midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko on a season-long loan from London rivals Chelsea.

The Frenchman was seen as a great player for the future after being part of the AS Monaco side which included Kylian Mbappe that got to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League back in 2016/17.

Would Bakayoko be a good signing for West Ham?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This prompted Chelsea to sign him, but he failed to set England’s top flight alight during his 43 appearances for the Blues, per Transfermarkt, where he managed three goals and three assists.

However, after a poor loan move at Italian giants AC Milan, the 25 year-old has had a renaissance whilst on loan at his former club Monaco. In Ligue 1 this season, he has averaged 2.4 tackles a game and 1.5 interceptions highlighting how good he has been at breaking up opposition attacks whilst playing in a holding midfield role, per WhoScored.

This has clearly been noticed by the Hammers who want to give him another chance in the Premier League, and it is easy to see why many are excited by the news given his form in Ligue 1.

Here is what fans have been saying following the news:
