West Ham are interested in signing Lazio left-back Jordan Lukaku, brother of Romelu, according to the Daily Mail (13/06 16:48).
The 23-year-old defender joined Lazio in 2016 from KV Oostende and made 30 appearances last season, scoring one and assisting two goals.
The Belgian only has one year left on his contract and it appears Lazio are keen to get some money on the player who is valued at £6.3million on Transfermarkt before he leaves on a free next summer.
West Ham are keen on the Manchester United talisman’s younger brother after having already filled the right-back position with Ryan Fredericks.
If Jordan has anywhere near the impact his older brother has had on the Premier League, then West Ham fans will be laughing.
He is strong going forward and offers pace on the flank like their new recruit Fredericks.
If he’s available for a cut-price fee because of his contract situation, he could be a very shrewd purchase for the Hammers who look set to change their style with wing-backs bombing up and down the flanks.
