Antonio Rudiger could be a perfect signing for West Ham if a transfer manages to materialise, according to Irons legend Frank McAvennie.
The Lowdown: West Ham linked with Rudiger move
The Hammers may have stumbled a bit in recent weeks, failing to win any of their last three Premier League games, but their start to the season has still been very promising.
However, one major setback for David Moyes has been the injury to Angelo Ogbonna, with the Italian ruled out for the rest of the campaign with cruciate ligament damage.

The Latest: McAvennie wants transfer to happen
Speaking to West Ham Zone, McAvennie claimed that Rudiger would be the perfect addition for Moyes’ squad next month. He said:
“Rudiger’s a good player, he’s David Moyes’ kind of player. No airs and graces, he goes and wins the ball, he’s a hard-working player.
“He would fit right into the West Ham way of playing at the moment. I’m all for bringing good players and Rudiger is definitely a good player.”
The Verdict: No-brainer for Hammers
In truth, it is hard to see why Rudiger would suddenly want to leave Chelsea at a time when he is an undisputed key player under Thomas Tuchel and potentially on track for winning the Premier League title in May.
That being said, if he decides that he wants to join West Ham, he could be a wonderful addition, having been hailed as ‘amazing’ by Rio Ferdinand earlier this year.
Not only that, but Rudiger’s experience could also be invaluable, having won 49 caps for Germany to date as well as a plethora of trophies with Chelsea, most notably the Champions League earlier this year. McAvennie is quite right to talk him up.
