West Ham: Talks to resume for Hans Vanaken

West Ham: Talks to resume for Hans Vanaken -West Ham News

West Ham United are still in talks with Club Brugge over a potential move for midfielder Hans Vanaken, according to reliable club insider ExWHUemployee.

The Lowdown

According to a report by The Guardian, the Hammers have set their sights on signing the 29-year-old and have since had two offers rejected by the Belgian giants. The initial £8m bid was swiftly declined, and their response waits to be seen for the Irons’ latest improved offer.

Amid speculation of a move to West Ham, Vanaken has made public his intent to join the Premier League outfit this summer.

The Latest

ExWHUemployee has shared an update on the progress of the negotiations between the Hammers and Brugge over a possible deal for Vanaken, with some West Ham fans seemingly desperate for the club to sign a new midfielder.

Alongside news of Emerson, the reliable insider revealed on Twitter: “Talks to resume for Vanaken.”

The Verdict

Hailed as a ‘towering’ playmaker by journalist Henry Tomlinson, it is easy to see why David Moyes is keen on bringing the 6 foot 5 Belgium international to the London Stadium this summer.

In 344 appearances for Club Brugge, Vanaken has scored 102 goals and has produced a further 73 assists, boasting incredible numbers for a midfielder.

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

With the Irons having failed to score in their opening three Premier League games, the arrival of Vanaken would hopefully add goals to a stagnant Hammers team who will be looking for inspiration in the final third.

Therefore, this could be a great seventh permanent summer signing for Moyes’ squad if they can pull it off.
