Many West Ham United fans have been left to laud some news involving Frederik Alves following a report from Football Insider.
As per the news outlet, the East London club are lining up the Denmark U21 international for a role in the first team in the 2021/22 term.
A source at the Hammers has said that he has made a big impression since his arrival and some members of the coaching staff have earmarked him for a more prominent role in the senior side as of next season.
Should West Ham give Alves a chance?
David Moyes and his backroom staff have no doubt that the central defender is capable of playing in the Premier League, with four games for the U23s under his belt so far in this campaign.
Nonetheless, it seems as if several members of the Irons faithful are more than happy for the 21-year-old to get his chance to step up.
West Ham fan reaction to Alves news
These WHU supporters lauded the news upon learning about it on Twitter, with one fan even going as far as to call it ‘excellent news’:
“Natural squad replacement for Balbuena. I like it.”
“Takes some pressure off our current first-team defence if they know they have a promising cb like him to step up in their absence”
“That’s exactly what I wanted to hear”
“Great to hear. Was worried he would be a Cardoso/Haksabanovic/Doneil Henry”
“Yeah looks the part”
