West Ham United: Fabrizio Romano discusses Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer interest

Image for West Ham United: Fabrizio Romano discusses Aaron Wan-Bissaka transfer interest

Trusted journalist Fabrizio Romano has stated that West Ham United could try and sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka but face competition from a rival club. 

It seems as though the Manchester United man has been up for sale for the whole of the summer (via ESPN), but as we enter the dying stages of the transfer window he is yet to find a new club.

However, a possible battle for his signature could be about to take place over the coming hours. Indeed, in a new update by Romano, the journalist claimed that West Ham and Crystal Palace are both interested in the fullback.

While speaking on his YouTube channel, he said (2:31): “There are two clubs interested. Crystal Palace, for a long time. And West Ham, let’s see if they decide to proceed for Wan-Bissaka or not.

“They have an interest. But at the moment it is not a direct negotiation.”

TIF thoughts on Aaron Wan-Bissaka and West Ham United…

It was reported that the Hammers were possible in the market for Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who can play right-back, but with Southampton now leading the race for his signature, it seems as though West Ham will have to look elsewhere.

With that in mind, it makes a reasonable amount of sense for David Moyes and co to line up another player with Premier League experience. And as Wan-Bissaka, who was hailed as an ‘unstoppable force’ upon his arrival at Manchester United, has spent the entirety of his professional career in England, he could be a good alternative option.

However, of course, some of that time was spent with the Eagles and so he will likely have an emotional attachment to his former club. That could make any deal tricky for West Ham, as he may favour a return to Palace. Even so, anything can happen in the transfer market, so don’t rule this one out just yet.
