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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
