Hammers looking at Samuel Umtiti to replace Linda at LB
Linda has one more year left of his contract but I fear he wont play any part for West Ham ever again. He wont be back this season and in the summer priority will be a new LB. Even if the new LB gets crocked I can see O’Brien becoming cover for that position instead of Linda.
So the Hammers have begun in earnest to get that position sorted before the Summer. One name mentioned has been Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti, of course a rumour wouldn’t be complete with titi (great name) also being linked to the Yids!
Titi can play Left Back or Central defence so would be very handy and is meant to be a bit tasty as defenders go but Lyon want around 10 million for him so G&S better get the old cheque book out (if they haven’t spunked it all on Carroll by then)
