Radoja would add some bite to West Ham United’s midfield in January

West Ham United should revive their interest in Celta Vigo midfielder Nemanja Radoja this January as according to Marca, the 25-year-old was keen on a Premier League move in the summer.

What’s the word?

The Hammers had a very busy window as new manager Manuel Pellegrini recruited nine new players following his appointment.

However, the team are yet to really click this season as they have lost all four of their Premier League fixtures.

West Ham are the only club in the division not to pick up a single point, and if their dismal form continues, the club may need to jump back into the transfer market in January.

If they do, they should consider reigniting their reported pursuit of Radoja, who according to Marca, wanted to move to England in the summer.

It is also believed that West Ham expressed an interest in the defensive midfielder, who rejected offers from clubs that were not in the Premier League.

Is Radoja an upgrade?

The Serbian would add plenty of grit in the middle of the park and would be the defensive muscle that West Ham need to protect the back four.

Carlos Sanchez was bought with that in mind, but he has failed to impress so far.

On top of that, Jack Wilshere and Mark Noble have lacked energy, which has resulted in them being overrun numerous times by opponents this season.

Radoja is unproven in the Premier League and there is no guarantee that he will adapt to English football.

However, such is his desire to make a move, he would be determined to prove his quality at the elite level.
