West Ham United in-the-know and reliable club insider ExWHUemployee has now backed a transfer development involving Brentford playmaker Christian Eriksen.
The Lowdown: Hammers get moving…
Hammers boss David Moyes, having sealed a deal for Morocco international Nayef Aguerd, is now reliably believed to be chasing ‘at least’ six new signings in total (Sky Sports).
They only just missed out on a Europa League qualification place at the hands of Man United on the final day of last season and it appears Moyes is determined to avoid a repeat scenario.
The Latest: ExWHUemployee backs Eriksen development…
Recently, there have been reports of a West Ham offer made for big name free agent Eriksen, who is set to be in high-demand.
Now, as per Twitter, reliable insider Ex has backed these claims as the Irons make an approach to Denmark’s superstar.
When asked if West Ham had made an offer for Eriksen, he simply stated ‘we have’.
The Verdict: Keep pushing…
Given many other clubs are also in contention, the race for his signature could be a hotly contested one.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
Eriksen’s former teammate at Spurs, Dele Alli, branded the 30-year-old a ‘phenomenon’ and it’s safe to say this label is still very relevant today.
Having come back to the fold from a cardiac arrest last year, the midfielder’s fairy-tale story resulted in him finishing 2021/22 as Brentford’s best-performing player by average match rating (WhoScored).
The Bees star also stood out as their most creative asset, making more key passes per 90 than anyone in their squad, and we believe he would be a major asset for Moyes at West Ham.
