Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have reacted to news on their club and Borussia Monchengladbach defender Ramy Bensebaini.
David Moyes has been tipped to target new defenders as one of his main summer transfer priorities alongside the acquisition of a star striker and signing Jesse Lingard permanently (Claret & Hugh).
The Bundesliga ace, who started 20 German top flight matches for Monchengladbach over 2020/2021, also managed more interceptions per 90 on average (1.9) than any West Ham man did in the Premier League (WhoScored).
As a result, Moyes and GSB are now interested in signing Bensebaini this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The Italian news outlet reports that while the Irons are eyeing him alongside Roma, his €20 million (£17.02m) asking price ‘risks dissuading’ both while new Monchengladbach head coach Adi Hütter is keen to keep him.
Regardless of these obstacles, West Ham fans have reacted to the news on social media with a fair few pleading for his signing.

“Yeah there’s no way”
“Said Benrahma has recommended him to David Moyes & is now considering to make a bid or not so let’s see if he does follow up & I think he should personally as he is exactly what we need at left back & a great back up for Aaron Cresswell & Arthur Masuaku trust me on that! COYI!”
