With Jeremy Ngakia not at West Ham anymore, the club need a new right-back and the latest link has seen a lot of the Hammers fanbase react.
According to CatalunyaRadio, FC Barcelona are thinking about selling highly-rated right-back Moussa Wague. This is an old transfer target of the Irons as they were wanting to sign him on loan in January, but he went on loan to Ligue 1 side Nice instead.
Barcelona are willing to let the defender go for €9 million, which is around £8.1 million, and this would be a very interesting signing if the East London side were able to secure it.
This campaign, Wague has featured only nine times in all competitions for both Barcelona and Nice, including one Champions League appearance, and he has managed an average of 1.5 tackles per game, via WhoScored, and has also picked up two assists.
The player is 21, clearly has some potential about him and now is the time to see if he can fulfil his potential. For under £10 million he seems to be a good price, so it will be interesting to see if West Ham will look to put a bid in in the summer.
Here is what fans said following the news:
Barcelona will be willing to let go highly-rated right back Moussa Wague for just €9m this summer.
West Ham were very interested in signing the 21 year old in January, but he instead went to OGC Nice on loan.

He doesn’t qualify for a work permit. Hasn’t played enough games for Senegal and doesn’t have an EU passport despite being trained at Barcelona.
