West Ham could land Coufal upgrade in Bright Osayi-Samuel

West Ham are plotting a move to sign Fenerbahce right back Bright Osayi-Samuel ahead of next season as David Moyes looks to boost his defensive options.

What’s the word?

That’s according to Football Insider, who states that West Ham, Southampton, and Brentford are in the running for the player ahead of the summer transfer window.

The player could be reportedly available for €3m (£2.5m) and this would represent a fantastic deal for whoever goes on to sign Osayi-Samuel.

Forget Coufal

It’s no secret that Moyes wants to enhance his West Ham squad as they aim to repeat their European heroics from this season in next year’s campaign.

More goals from the defence would be more than welcomed and Moyes could land a big Coufal upgrade with the younger, more attacking Osayi-Samuel.

Should West Ham sign Osayi-Samuel?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Coufal hasn’t scored any goals this season, although he has registered four assists, whereas the young Englishman has netted once, as well as providing three assists during the campaign.

The Fenerbahce right-back has more than double the number of shots than Coufal (24 to 11) and lands a greater percentage on target (45.8% to 36.4%).

Osayi-Samuel’s ability to operate in various positions would also give him an advantage over Coufal and this is something Moyes should be seriously considering.

The aforementioned fee for the 24-year-old is a bargain, especially in today’s world of sheer greed and overinflated transfer fees.

Who did West Ham lose their first league game of the season against?

Not only that, but he could make the club millions in profit if he is successful over the next few seasons. The Premier League is one of the finest in the world and his value could skyrocket following excellent performances.

Former manager Mark Warburton stated in the past that he is a “real handful” and has the pace that can “terrify defenders” and if this isn’t a glowing recommendation of his skill set, then I don’t know what is.
