West Ham fans react to Dendoncker reports

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United assistant manager Stuart Pearce scouted Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker against Club Brugge last weekend.

The Hammers have been linked with the Belgium international for some time, and it is understood that they have the option to sign him in this summer’s transfer window.

However, the London club are said to be unsure whether Dendoncker is worth £18m, which is the transfer fee that Anderlecht are said to be demanding.

Manchester United were linked with the 23-year-old in last summer’s transfer window, but the midfielder ultimately remained at Anderlecht.

He has only managed one goal in 42 appearances for Anderlecht this term, but more than held his own in the Champions League.

The West Ham fans have been offering their views on the latest transfer report, and it would be fair to say that it was a bit of a mixed reaction on social media.
