West Ham: Irons have chance to sign Georginio Wijnaldum

West Ham: Irons have chance to sign Georginio Wijnaldum -Premier League News

According to a French source, West Ham have been gifted the chance to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum this summer.

The Lowdown: West Ham monitoring Wijnaldum

Despite securing the signing of Flynn Downes from Swansea City, David Moyes is clearly keen to bolster his central midfield ranks even further, and the former Liverpool maestro is one of the most recent names to have been linked with a move to the London Stadium.

90min reported at the end of June that the Irons were keeping a close eye on the 31-year-old’s situation with the French giants, and after a fresh update, GSB may now have been granted the perfect opportunity to make their move and bring him back to the Premier League.

The Latest: Wijnaldum set to leave PSG

According to French outlet L’Equipe (via The Daily Mail), Wijnaldum has been ‘put on the transfer list’ by PSG after failing to ‘have an impact’ at the Parc des Princes.

The source claimed that the Ligue 1 champions’ board have ‘made the decision’ to exclude him from the club’s pre-season tour of Japan and have told him that he will ‘not play a part’ next season.

West Ham were name-checked as prospective suitors in The Daily Mail‘s report and are said to be ‘interested’ in a potential move this summer, alongside top-flight rivals Everton and Leicester.

The Verdict: Noble replacement

With Mark Noble officially hanging up his boots, the Hammers need to find a replacement who can bring a wealth of experience to their midfield, and Wijnaldum has plenty of that.

During his time with Liverpool, the Dutchman made an impressive 237 appearances, with 179 of those coming in the top flight (via Transfermarkt), and he was dubbed a ‘legend’ by his former manager Jurgen Klopp upon his exit from Anfield 14 months ago.

Should West Ham sign Wijnaldum?

Even though he’s probably older than the age profile that Moyes would typically go for, Wijnaldum will already know what it takes to compete against the big boys in the Premier League and would be a fantastic addition to the Scot’s starting XI in east London.

A winner of some of football’s biggest prizes and a scorer of 143 goals for club and country, the 31-year-old would undoubtedly bring a glittering CV to the London Stadium.
