West Ham United: GSB could be set to rescue David Moyes with new left-back after Masuaku injury

West Ham United: GSB could be set to rescue David Moyes with new left-back after Masuaku injury - West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to the Evening Standard, GSB and West Ham United are keen to sign a new left-back in January following a confirmed ‘big blow‘ to defender Arthur Masuaku – who is still recovering from knee surgery and possibly won’t be available for a while. 

GSB eye new left-back

Despite the club’s need to sign a potent striker this month, GSB are said to be eager on landing a new left-back to strengthen that position after a ‘big blow‘ in the form of an injury to Masuaku.

Before the confirmed setback for Masuaku, manager David Moyes set his team out in a three-at-the-back formation – with Vladimir Coufal and Masuaku operating as wing-backs pushing further forward.

In the Congolese star’s absence, West Ham have had to revert to a classic back four – hampering players like Aaron Cresswell, who was previously thriving in a left centre-back role.

Transfer Tavern take

To combat this issue, as per the Evening Standard, GSB could be set to rescue Moyes with a new left-back to succeed Masuaku out wide – but the report also suggests that funds are limited.

As a result, the board may have to be clever in their pursuit of a new defender – with bargain options or loan deals becoming a potential way forward.

Football Insider recently claimed that Rangers star Borna Barisic is on the list of supposed targets, meanwhile other sources have claimed that Brentford ace Rico Henry has emerged as a candidate.

Time will tell whether the Irons do sign a left-back in this transfer window, but West Ham and GSB are apparently keen to do so.
