West Ham could land perfect Benrahma partner in Isaiah Jones

West Ham United seemingly already have their plans in place for the upcoming January transfer window…

What’s the latest?

According to transfer insider Pete O’Rourke, Middlesborough winger Isaiah Jones is poised to make the well-tread path from the Championship to the London Stadium.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he claimed: “He is another player who has really impressed in the Championship and West Ham have had a lot of success signing players from the Championship and making the step up to the Premier League.

Should West Ham sign Isiah Jones?

Yes

Yes

No

No

“Isaiah Jones is still a very raw player, but he has real exciting potential and is lightning-quick. He has shown in the Championship that he can score goals and provide goals.

The journalist made those comments in light of reported interest from the Hammers who could be set to battle Crystal Palace of his signature.

He’s an exciting Benrahma partner

With his scorcher in their recent loss to the aforementioned Eagles, it marked Said Benrahma’s fourth goal of the season and his sixth goal contribution overall. It could finally be the campaign that sees the Algerian pay back his £25m fee.

What would certainly aid his development is to pair him with an equally attacking full-back, who could interchange and overlap to provide another man over but extra space, where the 27-year-old can be so deadly.

Now, in Jones, they could have found the perfect player for their long-term future; especially given the age of both Vladamir Coufal and Aaron Cresswell.

The 23-year-old already has four goals and three assists in the Championship for Boro, with his blistering speed and quick feet making him more akin to a traditional winger than a full-back.

How many points did West Ham end the Premier League season with?

It marks a second successive season where he seems set to be a standout creative outlet for an often uninspired team, as last campaign saw him register nine assists in numerous positions.

Largely a right-sided player, he also has the ability to play from the left-hand side, and with 1.9 tackles and 5.9 ground duels won per game, he is evidently a versatile asset who isn’t afraid of getting stuck in.

With the speed to help him offer at both ends of the pitch, and a wicked delivery that earns him his assists, all it would take is a year or two to adjust to the physicality of the Premier League.

By that point, Benrahma would be hitting his prime years, and his tricky and technically-proficient play style would likely thrive alongside the physical marvel of the exciting Jones.
