West Ham insistent on signing Leander Dendoncker

  West Ham insistent on signing Leander Dendoncker It appears as if West Ham have settled on their preferred midfield target this month. After reports emerged yesterday that the Hammers had made an enquiry to sign Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht, Belgium’s DH says West Ham are insistent on pushing through a deal to sign the Belgium international this month. Adding a defensive midfielder has been a top priority for both David Moyes and Slaven Bilic before him and Dendoncker, who has been linked with Manchester United, seems to tick every box. It’s believed that it would take a bid in excess of €20m to convince Anderlecht to sell this month, although they are determined to hold off until the summer before cashing in on their star midfielder. Moyes is eager to bring in Dendoncker in this month to solve his midfield issues and now his agent is freed up after finalising Kevin Mirrallas’ return to Olympiakos from Everton, there could be developments on this front in the near future.

West Ham are to hold further talks as they pursue a potential deal for Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker, according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year old Belgian is reportedly interested in teaming up with David Moyes at the London Stadium, and his agent has a good rapport with the West Ham boss.

Moyes is looking to strengthen his midfield this month and has been linked with a number of options. The club hope to complete Dendoncker as they need a holding midfielder, as well as hoping to complete a deal for Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea before the deadline.

Anderlecht are believed to be demanding a fee of around £27million for the Belgium international, which is due in part to the fact that Dendoncker has been filling in at centre-back in recent weeks, following an injury to Kara Mbodji.

Moyes is also reportedly interested in doing a deal for Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield. However, Burnley insist the 29-year old, who is out of contract in the summer, is not for sale this month. The Clarets have also offered him a new deal.
