West Ham: Irons chiefs ‘confident’ of signing Hans Vanaken

West Ham: Irons chiefs ‘confident’ of signing Hans Vanaken -Follow up

West Ham United and GSB are ‘confident’ of signing Club Brugge midfielder Hans Vanaken this summer, according to reputable journalist Paul Brown. 

The lowdown: Vanaken bids

The Hammers have been heavily linked with a move for Vanaken recently and had an opening bid of £8.4million rejected by the Belgian outfit earlier in the window.

Despite further insufficient offers, the 30-year-old Belgium international reportedly sees a move to the London Stadium as an appealing one, encouraging the east Londoners in their pursuit.

Now, one well-informed onlooker has delivered his verdict on whether the deal to bring Vanaken to West Ham will come to fruition…

The latest: ‘Confident’

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Brown – a journalist for the Daily Star – has claimed that the club are ‘confident’ of landing the 21-cap star before the September 1 deadline.

He certainly has all the tools to be a success and he does score in the league that he’s in.

“He also clearly wants to come and I think West Ham are confident they can make that happen.”

The verdict: Fingers crossed

A player built in a similar mould to fan favourite Tomas Soucek, it’s clear to see why David Moyes would be keen to add the attack-minded 6 foot 4 midfielder to the ranks in east London.

Seemingly on the verge of adding another creative midfield maestro in the shape of Lucas Paqueta to the squad, the Scot could be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking his starting XI moving forwards.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

So far this season, the towering Vanaken has earned a 7.24 SofaScore rating whilst winning 6.2 duels, successfully completing 1.2 dribbles and making 2.8 key passes on average per outing in the Jupiler Pro League.

Hailed for his ‘superb’ international form by journalist Josh Bunting in March 2021, the £14.4million valued man would be an excellent addition to the West Ham ranks.
