West Ham United are expected to keep chasing Belgium international Hans Vanaken, with Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth making a claim in that regard.
The Lowdown: West Ham in talks…
The Hammers and their manager David Moyes are said to be in talks for multiple players as they seek to bolster their options.
At the outset of what could be a crucial Premier League season, West Ham have started the campaign with two straight defeats, and the east Londoners will be looking to bounce back quickly.
Emerson Palmieri of Chelsea, along with Club Brugge’s Vanaken, are two players who are of serious interest to West Ham before the September 1 deadline, with Sheth sharing some news out of Rush Green on the latter.
The Latest: West Ham expected to go back for Vanaken…
Taking to social media, the Sky Sports journalist has made a claim involving the 29-year-old attacker.
Sheth stated that, after West Ham’s ‘opening bid’ – reportedly €10m (£8.4m) – was rejected, Moyes is ‘expected’ to make another attempt to sign the Belgium international.
The reporter explained: “Club Brugge have rejected West Ham United’s opening bid for midfielder Hans Vanaken. Offer believed to be €10m. West Ham expected to go back in – growing feeling player wants to go.”
The Verdict: Make the move?
Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?
Europa League place
Standing at a colossal 6 foot 4, the attacking midfielder possesses a physicality which seems tailor-made for the English top flight, with Moyes’ interest also justified by Vanaken’s impressive numbers going forward.
It will be interesting to see if West Ham can add the Club Brugge star to their ranks before it’s too late.
