West Ham will be hoping to bolster their squad this January as they look to continue their push for the European places.
One of the areas David Moyes might be looking to improve is right back, with Football Insider suggesting they’re keen on adding Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong to their squad.
The 23-year-old has played in the UK before, going from strength to strength during his time at Celtic helping them win the domestic treble. He later moved to the Bundesliga after making a name for himself at the Scottish club, joining Bayer Leverkusen in the winter of 2021.
Since moving to Germany, Frimpong has featured in a total of 118 matches and has contributed towards 48 goals. He’s been in in fine form this season, Frimpong has been on fire of late, laying on ten assists for his teammates with several clubs courting his services as a result of his good form.
A right back in demand
With an injury to Jurrien Timber and Takehiro Tomiyasu struggling with injuries throughout the season, Mikel Arteta is rumoured to be looking at Frimpong as an alternative option in his Arsenal side.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are also exploring the possibility of signing the Dutch international in the ongoing transfer window. While they do not really need another right-back, his arrival will surely provide Jurgen Klopp with numerous options and he could push Trent Alexander-Arnold into the centre of the park.
While Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in his services, West Ham United are looking to beat both clubs in the race for his signature.
Other areas needed attention
Whilst adding an attack-minded right-back will give Moyes extra ammunition going forward, it should be noted that other areas need depth.
With Vladimir Coufal and Darnell Johnson available at full-back, funds would be better spent improving the depth in attack this window, with the striker options currently incredibly light.
