West Ham United: Irons interested in signing Timo Hubers

West Ham United: Irons interested in signing Timo Hubers -West Ham News

West Ham United have joined a whole host of Premier League teams in the race to sign FC Koln centre-back Timo Hubers in the summer.

The Lowdown: Huber’s situation

The 25-year-old has made 15 appearances in the Bundesliga this season after forcing his way into the starting XI, following a period on the bench.

Ever since his inclusion he has been an absolute colossus for Steffen Baumgart’s defence, with WhoScored ranking him as Koln’s best player this season, averaging a 7.13 rating.

However, at the end of the season, Hubers will enter the final 12 months of his current contract. Consequently, a number of Premier League sides have been eyeing a cheap deal for the defender.

The Latest: West Ham now interested

According to a fresh report by the Daily Mail, West Ham are among a bunch of Premier League sides who are interested in signing Hubers in the summer.

It is said that Newcastle, Leeds and Crystal Palace are all understood to be tracking the 6 foot 2 centre-back, while West Ham, Southampton and Championship promotion favourites Fulham are also monitoring his situation.

The Daily Mail have reported that it will take a £6 million transfer fee to coax Hubers away from the German top-flight.

The Verdict: Good back-up option

David Moyes’ side have struggled at times this season with a lack of options in the central defender position.

This issue was exacerbated by the serious injury sustained in November by Angelo Ogbonna, who is now hoping to make his return before the end of the season.

Therefore, a player like Hubers, with experience in a competitive top-flight division, could provide West Ham’s Kurt Zouma and Craig Dawson with much-needed cover.
