West Ham fans eye up loan move for Bakayoko

West Ham fans have been discussing making a shock swoop to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko, and fans would love to bring him in as a replacement for Cheikhou Kouyate.

If West Ham are going to get the best out of Jack Wilshere, they are going to need a strong, energetic, tough tackling midfielder to allow the Englishman freedom to roam about and use his supreme technical ability and vision.

At the moment it looks like that man will be Kouyate, but fans are eyeing up a move for Bakayoko instead.

The 6 ft 1 Frenchman was absolutely wonderful for Monaco alongside new Liverpool signing Fabinho, but his move to Chelsea has been a complete disaster, and Maurizio Sarri’s summer moves could force him even further down the pecking order.

The Blues wrapped up a mega money move for Jorginho on Saturday, and they’re still being heavily linked with a move for Russian wonderkid Aleksandr Golovin.

Bakayoko grabbed three goals and three assists in his disappointing season at Stamford Bridge, and a loan move to another Premier League club could be just what’s needed to get him back to his best.

He would certainly be an upgrade on Kouyate, perhaps why Hammers fans are so in favour of a move, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
