West Ham are reportedly considering an offer for Southampton defender Jannik Vestergaard, according to The Daily Telegraph’s Mike McGrath.
Vestergaard has been with Southampton since 2018, having previously been on the books with Borussia Mönchengladbach – he has made 79 appearances in total for the Saints.
That includes 32 appearances in the 2020/21 season for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side, as they finished 15th in the Premier League table last term.
The Saints lost Danny Ings to Aston Villa recently, whilst also being faced with interest from Dean Smith’s side for James Ward-Prowse’s services.
David Moyes’ side will be looking to build on a strong campaign last term, after finishing sixth in the Premier League table, meaning they will now need additional depth to cope with the demands of Europa League football.
Plenty of West Ham supporters took to social media to react to their rumoured interest in signing Vestergaard, and you can find some of the best comments from West Ham Central’s Twitter account below….
Mixed opinions from Hammers fans
“I’d rather play David Moyes at centre back than Vestegaard.”
“Dear god no.”
“No way please no.”
“Oh no …..”
“I’m all for this.”
“Vestergaard was great for Saints last year. He is really good.”
“Would’ve been fuming with this last season but really improved and his passing would be good for our counter. Won’t happen though.”
“Always looked a good player to me, pretty sure we have enquired about him before.”
