West Ham United plot move for midfielder with Kante-like qualities

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Aug 10th 2016

West Ham have been extremely busy in the transfer market in the last few days, bringing in Arthur Masuaku from Olympiakos and Andre Ayew from Swansea.

The spending will not stop there if Football Whispers are to be believed, however, with Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu reported to be a target.

Similar in style to N’Golo Kante, the dynamic central midfielder loves pinching the ball and driving forward into space.

Although he missed just five Serie A games last season, the 25-year-old’s absence was certainly keenly felt by his club:

In fact, Udinese failed to win any of this quintet of matches, collecting just a single point and being outscored by nine goals to one.

An incredibly consistent performer over the course of the last four campaigns, the Ghana international would inject real energy into the Hammers’ midfield were he to join them:
