West Ham: Hammers eyeing Marcos Senesi

West Ham: Hammers eyeing Marcos Senesi -Premier League News

West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Feyenoord defender Marcos Senesi, according to Dutch outlet 1908.nl (via Sport Witness). 

The lowdown: Career so far

Signed from Argentinian outfit San Lorenzo in 2019 for £6.3million (Transfermarkt), Senesi has made 116 outings for the Dutch Eredivisie giants since arriving in Holland.

The 25-year-old centre-back reportedly recently attracted the attention of mega-rich Newcastle United, whilst Italian superpowers Inter Milan, AS Roma and Napoli have all previously been linked with the Argentina international.

Now it appears as though the Hammers are also keen on Senesi as David Moyes attempts to further bolster the defensive department after signing Nayef Aguerd…

The latest: ‘Battle erupts’

As per 1908.nl, translated by SW, West Ham and newly promoted Bournemouth are both keen on signing the one-cap star.

It’s claimed that ‘battle erupts’ between the two Premier League clubs in order to land Senesi, with Feyenoord demanding €15million (£12.6million) for the Argentine.

The report also states that ‘well-established English sources’ have told the outlet that West Ham are in the market for a central defender following the injury suffered to Aguerd that left the ace requiring surgery.

The verdict: Affordable optin

Having already shelled out £30million to bring Aguerd to the London Stadium (Sky Sports), it’s unlikely that GSB would sanction another big money outlay on a player who ultimately could prove to be little more than a backup option.

That said, the Moroccan’s injury has left Moyes with only Angelo Ogbonna, Kurt Zouma, Craig Dawson and a wantaway Issa Diop at his disposal in the defensive department, and £12.6m would hardly be an unachievable outlay.

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

Last season, Senesi scored three times and provided three assists in 50 appearances across all competitions, earning an impressive 6.97 Sofascore rating whilst making 4.2 clearances and winning 4.0 duels on average per game – outperforming Ogbonna when it comes to duels as the Italian only won 3.5 per 90 minutes in the Premier League.

Holding an estimated market value of £15.3million and in the final 12 months of a contract in Holland (Transfermarkt), signing the man known as ‘The Gladiator’ by supporters would be a superb piece of business and would see Moyes furnish the ranks with another battling character in the mould of the defenders already in situ.
