West Ham United boss David Moyes is considering a move for Inter Milan left-midfielder Robin Gosens, according to reports.
The Lowdown: West Ham target Gosens
Gosens has mainly featured as a bit-part player for his current club so far this season, amassing just 198 minutes on the field across ten Serie A appearances up to this point.
Consequently, the German wide playmaker may look to secure a move to the London Stadium in the upcoming transfer window, as he searches for more game time, in a move that would provide a much-needed creative outlet for Moyes’ side.
The Latest: Premier League interest
As per a report from Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport, the West Ham boss is looking to bolster his options on the left, with a move for the versatile German, who can also play at left-back.
According to their information, the Hammers will have to fight off interest from other clubs to ensure the services of the out-of-favour 28-year-old, as top-flight rivals Leicester City have also made their interest clear.
The Verdict: Great signing
The Irons have struggled to create chances in the Premier League during this campaign, scoring just 12 goals in 14 league outings, the second-lowest amount outside of the relegation zone.
As such, they are in dire need of someone who can make things happen from midfield, and this is exactly the area in which the 14-time Germany international thrives.
Although a lack of minutes has stunted his development at the Nerazzurri, the versatile £23k-per-week talent – who was once dubbed a “beast” by Bundesliga writer Jasmina Schweimer – was sensational for his former club Atalanta, racking up 11 goals and six assists in 31 appearances during the 2020/21 season.
With that in mind, and the important factor that he can also provide cover for Aaron Cresswell at left-back – as well as further up the pitch – if needs be, the Irons should move swiftly to lodge a bid for Gosens before he is snapped up by another club.
