West Ham United To Compete With Wolves For This Bundesliga Midfielder: Wise Move For The Hammers?

According to a recent report by Calciomercato, West Ham United have joined the chase to secure the services of Kerem Demirbay from 1899 TSG Hoffenheim. However, the same source has also revealed that the Hammers will face stiff competition from Wolverhampton Wanderers in pursuit of the Bundesliga ace.

The Recent Rise Of Kerem Demirbay

The Bundesliga midfielder has enjoyed another solid campaign with Hoffenheim this season after putting in some dazzling displays for them during this campaign. Since making a move from Hamburger SV in the summer of 2016, the German talent has gradually established himself as a regular first-team starter at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Demirbay has featured in 29 matches for the German side this term, scoring four goals while grabbing nine assists in all competitions. He has also earned two international caps for Germany and has also managed to score one goal for his nation so far.

He could turn out to be a shrewd acquisition for West Ham if they manage to bring him to England in this off-season. Demirbay has all the attributes required to be a success story in Premier League football.

What Will The German Add To Pellegrini’s Side?

Demirbay is blessed with a wide passing range and is a productive dribbler with the ball from midfield. He has a knack for finding space in the opposition half, and his shots from long range are often on target. The German has also added some goals and assists to his game this season and is widely considered amongst the best midfielders that the Bundesliga has to offer. However, his defensive work-rate is quite low which makes him a liability for any of his potential suitors.

Will Recruiting Demirbay Be A Wise Move For The Hammers?

The Hoffenheim sensation has had his fair share of problems with injuries in the recent past which will be a cause for concern. The Hammers need to add more creativity to their midfield during the summer transfer window so Demirbay might be an excellent signing for them ahead of the new campaign. 

Furthermore, he will bolster Manuel Pellegrini’s midfield options significantly at the East London club. Thus, it would be a clever move for West Ham to lure the German midfielder to the London Stadium in the coming months if he is available for the right price.
