Many West Ham United fans want the club to sign Clement Lenglet after they were linked with a move for the Barcelona defender.
David Moyes deserves huge credit for leading the Hammers to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League last term, especially as the Irons battled relegation during the 2019/20 campaign. As such, they will be competing in the Europa League this coming campaign.
However, the Irons hierarchy cannot expect him to repeat such heroics without the necessary squad improvements – West Ham are yet to make a new signing in this transfer window.
However, according to Ekrem Konur, they are in talks to sign a new centre-back, albeit on loan. That man is £22.5m-valued Lenglet (Transfermarkt), who plays for Barcelona and France – he appeared for Les Bleus at Euro 2020 was a regular in the Blaugrana’s line-up at club level in 2020/21.

News of the Irons’ interest in the 26-year-old was shared on Twitter by Konur and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters. These took to the social media platform to share their thoughts, with one fan describing Lenglet as a “baller”.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Lenglet links
“85 rated on FIFA, get it done!”
“He was amazing for Sevilla! I’d happily take him!”
“I’d happily have him, either with Ogbonna in a back 4 or if we do a 5/3 then Diop, Lenglet and Ogbonna. He could also help develop Diop further.”
“I hope people realise that ‘not good enough for Barcelona’ means that he’ll still be one of our best players”
“Don’t know much but if it’s a loan I would take it”
“Yeah tbf, baller!”
