West Ham fans are split on Laxalt interest

According to Tuttomercatoweb, West Ham United are interested in signing Genoa midfielder Diego Laxalt in this summer’s transfer window.

Laxalt, who has a contract with Genoa until 2022, scored three times and registered three assists in 32 Serie A appearances during the 2017-18 campaign.

The 25-year-old actually came through the youth system at Uruguayan outfit Defensor Sporting before joining Inter Milan in 2013.

Laxalt never made an appearance for the San Siro giants, however, and spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Genoa before completing a permanent move in 2016.

Everton are amongst the clubs to be linked with a move, but West Ham are also now believed to be in the hunt.

Laxalt made four appearances for Uruguay at the 2018 World Cup, and played left-back in three of those matches. He played a lot of football at left midfield for Genoa last term though, which shows his versatility.

The West Ham fans have been discussing a potential move, and it would be fair to say that they have split views on the South American.
