These really are depressing times for the West Ham fans within the Transfer Tavern as their team edges nearer and nearer to the drop zone every week. Whether their top flight dreams are over is uncertain but if they manage to beat the drop, the owners have to invest massively in the summer to ensure mistakes are learned from.
Fortunes were thought to be revived upon the arrival of David Moyes but since his brilliant entrance, leading the club to victories against Chelsea, Stoke and draws against Tottenham and Arsenal, West Ham have recently been on a dramatic decline.
West Ham are a big club with a big stadium that is fitting to the Premier League, so if they manage to see off relegation fears, a player that should be a realistic target is Manchester City’s Fabian Delph, valued at £9 million on Transfermarkt. The 28-year-old has been gifted with a lot of game time this season for the runaway leaders but as the Citizens look to ever progress, Delph may be deemed surplus to requirements if more money is splashed.
Fabian Delph has overcome injury worries over the last few years to play in 23 games in all competitions for Man City this season and has brilliantly replaced the injured Benjamin Mendy as a makeshift left-back.
Delph has been utilised as a left back and central midfielder for City, two positions West Ham desperately need to attend to this summer. With Cheikhou Kouyate out of sorts this season as well as Arthur Masuaku being disgraced by the club when spitting on an opponent, Fabian Delph could be the perfect option for West Ham if they stay in the Premier League.
