Insider ExWHUemployee has revealed that West Ham United have an interest in signing left-back Owen Wijndal. 

The club’s Europa League dream came to an end recently at the hands of Eintracht FrankfurtHowever, things may have been a little different had Aaron Cresswell been a little more disciplined.

Indeed, the defender picked up a red card, which was a key factor in West Ham losing the tie. Considering he had also been sent off against Lyon in the quarter-final, his displays may have left some supporters pretty exasperated.

Do West Ham need a new left-back signing this summer?





With that in mind, it may be of interest to hear that the club look to be targeting a new full-back in the summer. Indeed, while talking on The West Ham Way podcast, Ex claimed that AZ Alkmaar defender Wijndal is someone the club are ‘very keen on’.

He said: “In terms of left-backs – we are looking at left-backs as well – one guy we are very keen on is a guy called Owen Wijndal of AZ in Holland.

“He is a Dutch international. He has got a lot of potential, he’s quite highly rated, he’s someone we’ve looked at.”

West Ham United fans, who were these players sold to? Starting with Felipe Anderson

The speedster, whose release clause is reportedly around €10m (£8.5m), has captained the side throughout the season, which also shows some pretty impressive leadership skills considering he is still only 22 years of age.
With 11 international caps with Holland to his name as well, Wijndal is clearly a player with plenty of potential. Taking it all into account, it’s easy to see why he is drawing some attention from a Premier League club such as West Ham.
