According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United could move for Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi in this summer’s transfer window.
A recent report claimed that Otamendi was open to leaving City this summer.
The Argentina international could seemingly look for a route away from the Premier League champions ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign.
According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham are considering a move.

The London club’s supporters have been on social media reacting to the interest and it would be fair to say that there are some mixed opinions.
Indeed, whilst a number would be more than happy to take the title-winning centre-back, others feel that the Hammers should be looking at younger options in that area of the field.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham fans can be seen below:

Would love otamendi, can’t see it being permanent as his fee and wages would take all of our expected 30m kitty up. In loan maybe??
