West Ham United are reportedly interested in making a move for Monaco defender Guillermo Maripan, as their search for defensive reinforcements continues.
Enjoying a productive 2020/21 campaign, the Chile international registered six goal contributions in 31 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit; five goals and one assist [Transfermarkt].
Now, he could be set to move to England owing to recent reports.
Would Maripan be a good signing for West Ham?
He could be available for around £17.5million, after his current employers exited the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Shakhtar Donetsk.
In light of this news, no wonder loads of West Ham United diehards took to social media to comment on the latest developments, with the fan base desperate for a new centre-back addition before they embark on a gruelling campaign in Europa League football.
West Ham United FC fans react:
Replying to West Ham Central on Twitter, here is what some fans had to say about the news:
“We took about 6 months to decide between Zouma, Milenkovic and Caleta Car No chance they sign Maripan so quickly without identifying him as a target 37 times first”
“It’s the mirror spinning a target we have been linked with in the pellegrini era. Not looking into this at all.”
