Aaron Wan-Bissaka news is music to West Ham United fans’ ears as Manchester United make big decision on the right-back.
A report from 90 Min claims that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag expects the 25-year-old to leave Old Trafford in January.
Now, this will undoubtedly interest David Moyes and the Hammers fans.
The West Ham boss already tried to sign Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Moyes missed out on the ex-Crystal Palace defender, but he will surely be keen to give it another go in the January transfer window.
Vladimir Coufal is an absolute shadow of his former self, whilst Ben Johnson has been miles off the pace this season.
Meanwhile, Thilo Kehrer looked extremely shaky during the 4-6 weeks leading up to the World Cup break.
And now West Ham might just have a great chance to improve what has become a real problem position…
Manchester United make Aaron Wan-Bissaka decision
90 Min claims that Man United expects the 25-year-old to move on in January.
So what are West Ham waiting for?
Wan-Bissaka joined Manchester United three years ago from Crystal Palace for around £50 million (Independent).
The 25-year-old possesses blistering pace. And that recovery speed would enable us to push further up the pitch, which ties in perfectly with Moyes saying that he wants his team to become more of a possession-based side.
If you are to do that, you need real recovery pace at the back and AWB possesses that in abundance.
The Manchester United right-back is an exceptional defender and is one of the very best tacklers around.
Wan-Bissaka has been described as an ‘explosive’ player by the The Athletic. Meanwhile, Owen Hargreaves once labelled him as ‘unplayable’ (TEAMtalk).
He is out of contract in the summer of 2024, but Man United have the option to extend that deal by a further 12 months.
West Ham will have to pay around £25 million to sign Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United in the January transfer window according to a report from Si.
Crystal Palace is said to be Wan-Bissaka’s most likely destination in January (90 Min). However, a move to the Eagles is far from set in stone for the pacy right-back.
And the Hammers cannot afford to hesitate now.
The reported Manchester United Aaron Wan-Bissaka decision has left the door wide open for West Ham to swoop in and secure what would be a truly stunning January signing.
Whether the Hammers board are prepared to back Moyes heavily in the transfer market once again remains to be seen though.
