Revealed: Most West Ham United fans keen for club to swoop for Santos

West Ham United fans will be keeping a keen eye on the club’s transfer activity this summer.

New manager Manuel Pellegrini will get his first chance to shape a squad that he sees fit for the new Premier League season.

According to the Daily Mail, Brazilian defender Marlon Santos is on the club’s radar.

The 22-year-old, who is valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, spent last season on loan at Nice.

The youngster has struggled to find a way through to the first team at the Camp Nou, which leads to suggestions that he may seek a move elsewhere.

Santos has the potential to be a world-class centre-back, but he can also be positioned at right-back when needs be.

The defender’s versatility is a big advantage for any club, but he may need time to grow before being thrown in the deep end at West Ham.

After the reports emerged, we asked you if the East London outfit should swoop for Santos, and an overwhelming majority are all for it.
