Some West Ham United fans have been left delighted as a transfer update emerged on Duje Caleta-Car.
As per The Athletic, the East London club are set to re-enter in the race to sign the Marseille central defender once the summer transfer window opens.
Should West Ham sign Caleta-Car?
Although David Moyes’ team were very impressive in the Premier League in the 2020/21 term, finishing in sixth spot, they conceded no fewer than 47 goals in total, which was more than Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion, who all finished below them in the table (BBC Sport).
Thus, a new centre-back will be needed in order to bolster the defence, especially given that they will be playing in the UEFA Europa League as well.
Caleta-Car could well fit the bill, given his monster six-foot-three frame, which would be useful in both boxes in the top flight and in Europe, as well as coming off the back of an impressive Ligue 1 season in which he won 3.7 of his duels per match and averaged an impressive 3.9 clearances and 1.3 interceptions per game too (Sofascore).
Nonetheless, he is certainly a player that some members of the London Stadium faithful seemingly want to see come through the door.
West Ham fans on Caleta-Car transfer update
These Hammers supporters raved as the transfer update was shared on Twitter (via West Ham Central):
“This would be great if we can get it done for £25 million like we was close to before”
“I’m on my knees”
“Him and Milenkovic would be a class window”
“Vroom, vroom, get in me Car!!”
