West Ham United line up January move for fantastic forward

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:00 Dec 13th 2016

West Ham secured a valuable point at Anfield on Sunday, but there can be no disguising the importance of their upcoming festive fixtures against Burnley, Hull, Swansea and Leicester.

The results in those matches should tell us whether or not the Hammers will find themselves in an unexpected relegation battle this term, whilst they may also have an influence on the club’s January transfer policy.

GREGOIRE DEFREL

One player thought to interest the East London outfit is Gregoire Defrel, with reports in the Daily Express suggesting that Liverpool are also keen on bringing him to England.

Currently on the books of Sassuolo, the French forward has been impressing in both domestic and continental competition this season:

Taking into account his club’s status as relative minnows, the 25-year-old’s return of seven goals from 18 starts across Serie A and the Europa League is a pretty decent one.

Not only that, but his ability to operate as the central striker in a 4-3-3 formation makes him an ideal candidate to form a potent front-three with Dimitri Payet and Andre Ayew.
