West Ham: Insider shares promising Vanaken update -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh have shared a fairly promising update on the club’s chances of signing Belgium international Hans Vanaken.

The Lowdown: Irons chase deal…

The Premier League side are reliably believed to be chasing a deal for Club Brugge’s star man who notched 11 goals and nine assists in the Jupiler Pro League last season.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth backs that West Ham hold a serious interest in Vanaken, and while they’ve had an opening offer rejected, it is believed they will keep pushing.

The 29-year-old is also thought to be interested in joining David Moyes’ side and an insider has now weighed in with their own small update.

The Latest: Moyes could land Vanaken for £10m

Indeed, Claret & Hugh claim that Vanaken could join West Ham before September 1 with a potential move contributing to their major financial outlay this summer.

C&H, stating the east Londoners’ spend could reach the £150million mark this summer, subtly add Moyes ‘could yet land’ the Jupiler Pro League star for a further ‘£10m’.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Reaching the twilight phase of his career, Moyes and co will be running out of time to seal a deal for Vanaken whilst he is at the peak of his powers.

His goals and assists return over 2021/2022 is arguably reason enough for West Ham to consider a move, not least the glowing endorsement by former teammate Onur Kaya.

Kaya labelled Vanaken a ‘big player’ with ‘extraordinary intelligence’ and his added attacking threat in the final third could be very beneficial to Moyes ahead of a long, challenging campaign.
