West Ham: Irons could re-join Aina transfer race

West Ham: Irons could re-join Aina transfer race -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United could re-join the race to sign Torino full-back Ola Aina in January, coming after club owners GSBK had a summer bid rejected. 

The Lowdown: Hammers spending spree…

The last transfer window was arguably West Ham’s most eventful and enjoyable for many years with manager David Moyes receiving real financial backing from the board.

GSBK (Gold, Sullivan, Brady and Kretinsky) and head of recruitment Rob Newman set out to bolster the Hammers squad with eight major Premier League signings in total.

Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Gianluca Scamacca, Maxwel Cornet, Thilo Kehrer, Emerson Palmieri and club record signing Lucas Paqueta all arrived at the London Stadium – signalling real intent to the rest of the division.

The Latest: West Ham could re-join Aina race…

However, according to allnigeriasoccer.com, West Ham could have made even more signings.

Aina was apparently on Moyes’ radar and the east Londoners even had a summer bid rejected for the Nigeria international, but that isn’t all she wrote.

ANS go on to state West Ham have been ‘tracking’ the 25-year-old since last season and ‘could revive their interest’ in the coming months.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Vladimir Coufal is entering the twilight phase of his career and Harrison Ashby is being repeatedly linked with an exit from Rush Green, potentially meaning West Ham should contemplate signing a long-term alternative to Ben Johnson at right-back.

Aina could be a brilliant option in this regard with members of the media hailing him as one of the Chelsea academy’s ‘unbelievable’ talents in recent years.

He’s also proved he can cut it in the English top flight during an impressive spell on loan at Fulham over the 2020/2021 season.
