Hans Vanaken, who’s reportedly a transfer goal for West Ham United, has received an update from Dharmesh Sheth.
The Sky Sports journalist recently wrote on Twitter that West Ham and the Jupiler Pro League team are still in negotiations over a deal, despite reports that Club Brugge KV had rejected David Moyes’ initial €10 million (£8.5 million) bid for the attacking midfielder. The 29-year-old is regarded as very open to moving to east London this summer.
Sheth said: “Ongoing talks over Club Brugge midfielder Hans Vanaken.”
Vanaken has established himself as a deadly forward-thinking midfielder during his time at Brugge, so the concept of the 29-year-old pairing with Jarrod Bowen within the Hammers’ attacking foursome next season goes to be extremely alluring for each Moyes and the London Stadium faithful.
The £14.4m-rated prodigy was in incredible form over the course of his 39 Jupiler Pro League games last season, scoring 11 goals, doling out nine assists, and organising 10 huge probabilities for his teammates. He also averaged 1.8 shots, 1.6 critical passes, and 0.6 dribbles per game.
With these results, the “exceptional” midfielder making £48k per week averaged an astounding 7.31 SofaScore match rating, placing him seventh within the premier division of Belgian football the previous trip.
Subsequently, the considered this pair partnering up behind either Gianluca Scamacca or Michail Antonio within the Hammers’ attacking 4 the next season is bound to encourage fear into Premier League defenses nationwide.
Because of this, we expect the Irons should do every part of their power to influence Brugge to part with Vanaken this summer because an incredible partnership could possibly be on the horizon.
