Revealed: 78% of West Ham fans want to sign van Aanholt

West Ham fans are growing increasingly frustrated with both of their left backs, and a whopping 78 per cent of polled fans want to move for Premier League rival Patrick van Aanholt.

Manuel Pellegrini is transforming West Ham, but the Hammers still have a couple of glaring weak spots, most notably in defence.

Pablo Zabaleta has been superb this season but will need replacing in the near future, and neither of Arthur Masuaku or Aaron Cresswell have proved themselves on the opposite flank.

Both full backs are excellent going forward, but neither of them have the positional awareness or composure to become great defenders.

This is where van Aanholt has the upper hand, as the flying Dutchman is elite going forward but also has the speed, smarts and desire to track back when necessary.

The Hammers have shown in the past they are happy to poach talent from other Premier League clubs, and 78 per cent of fans want to use Cresswell to land the Crystal Palace ace in a player-plus-cash deal.

Van Aanholt has 27 goals and 25 assists in his club career, and a partnership with Felipe Anderson down the left flank could be absolutely lethal.
