According to a report by Il Milanista, West Ham United are interested in signing Marseille defender Jordan Amavi this summer as a potential free agent to sure up the left-back position – prompting some excitement from these Hammers as links emerge.
Amavi, who has been on the treatment table for most of 2020/2021, enjoyed a fine 2019/2020 season before his recent injury problems – averaging an impressive 2.1 tackles and 2.2 interceptions per 90 for the Ligue 1 side (WhoScored).
The Frenchman, however, still hasn’t put pen to paper on a contract extension with Marseille and could leave for free in the next transfer window – something that has clearly enticed GSB and co as they are now reportedly interested in signing him.
In response to the links, these West Ham fans buzzed and all seem to be in agreement that Amavi would be a good capture for the Irons.
One Hammers fan even dubbed him a would-be ‘superb signing’, and judging by what he’s capable of when fully fit and firing, it’s hard to argue.
