West Ham are interested in signing Troy Deeney, according to a report in The Daily Star,
Late move for Deeney
West Ham were quiet on transfer deadline day, but it seems they will be busy before the domestic window shuts on October 16th. They are said to have agreed a deal for Said Benrahma, and are now looking at Deeney as back-up to Michail Antonio.
The Hornets are reportedly open to offers for the 32-year-old, with West Brom also interested.
Controversial but effective foil to Antonio
Antonio has been in fantastic form so far this term for the Hammers. In the first four Premier League matches of the campaign, he has scored twice, helping David Moyes’ side to two wins along the way.
Deeney is, therefore, unlikely to come in as a first-choice option if he does sign, but he could be a fantastic back-up. Although Watford were relegated last season, he scored 10 goals in 27 league games, and has 160 strikes throughout his career. Deeney also won 7.3 headers per game last term, showing just how much of a handful he can be.
Would you like to sign Troy Deeney?
It could be a controversial signing, though. Deeney has previously admitted that West Ham fans give him a lot of stick, with him goading supporters on one occasion after scoring at The London Stadium. Whether the fans would take him is up for debate, but he certainly has plenty to offer on the pitch.
