West Ham United: Fans react to James Tarkowski transfer news

West Ham United: Fans react to James Tarkowski transfer news -West Ham Transfer Rumours

Many West Ham United fans have been left reacting to transfer news which has emerged on James Tarkowski.

As per The Evening Standard, the Burnley defender would be ‘open’ to a move to the London Stadium, and David Moyes is a ‘long-term admirer’ of the 28-year-old. His current deal with the Clarets expires in the summer and they value him at £20m, although the east London club are ‘unlikely’ to match that asking price given his contract situation.

Should West Ham sign Tarkowski?





Tarkowski would provide quality competition for the Hammers’ current centre-backs, as he has actually averaged more tackles, interceptions and blocks per game in the Premier League than Angelo Ogbonna, Craig Dawson and Kurt Zouma so far this season (WhoScored).

However, £20m does seem like a sizeable transfer fee for a player who could leave for free in just a few months’ time, so the Irons should also consider other options.

These West Ham supporters seemed split on the Tarkowski links as the transfer news was shared on Twitter:

“Yes, quality centre-back & if Moyes want him why would anyone else say no? I never really see us linked in the same way with strikers though, never solid names like this.”

“No-brainer for me. At 28yrs old, he has tons of PL experience, 6 months remaining on his contract plus being left-footed (not too many of them around) is a long-term replacement for Oggy.”

“Would love this tbh, quality defender”
