The West Ham United fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased with the team’s current form as they continue to move up the Premier League table. The Hammers are currently 11th in the top flight as their relegation worries have significantly eased in recent weeks.

But there is a mutual acknowledgement among the fans that new signings are needed due to there being a lack of strength in depth. Furthermore, West Ham have a number of players out injured and this could come back to bite them if they fail to strengthen in the January transfer window.

According to an exclusive report from The Sun, Clement Grenier is one of West Ham’s targets. West Ham could swoop for Grenier this summer on a pre-contract agreement – which would be a free transfer – but might consider bringing him in this month instead. Grenier is thought to be available for around £1m.

The 5-cap France international is also on the radar of Inter Milan but David Moyes has opened talks with Grenier in the hope that he can convince him to join the East London club instead of moving to Serie A. Moyes will put a three year deal on the table for the Frenchman.

The Verdict

Grenier is a skillful and classy attacking midfielder who would fit in well at West Ham if he joined this month. After Manuel Lanzini was taken off against Bournemouth, Moyes might have to rethink his transfer strategy and bring the 27-year-old in this month. At a price of just £1m, it is a gamble worth taking for the Hammers.
