West Ham reportedly battling Leeds United to land Bundesliga ace

West Ham reportedly battling Leeds United to land Bundesliga ace.

West Ham are reportedly interested in Borussia Dortmund’s Raphaël Guerreiro. The full-back is the latest name to be linked with the Hammers ahead of the January.

According to a report by Jeunes Footeux, David Moyes is keen to lure the Portugal international to the London Stadium this winter. He has made 18 appearances in all competitions this season and has chipped in with three goals and three assists.

However, his contract at Dortmund expires at the end of this campaign and he is due to become a free agent next summer. The Bundesliga side risk losing him for nothing if they don’t sell him for a fee in the next transfer window or can’t agree terms over a new deal.

West Ham aren’t the only club in the frame for his signature though. Fellow top flight outfit Leeds United are said to be keen, as reported by TEAMtalk. The Whites are currently a point above the Hammers in the table.

Guerreiro, who is 28-years-old, made the move to Signal Iduna Park back in 2016 and has since been a key player. He has made 206 appearances for the German giants and has scored 37 goals. Prior to his switch there, he played in France for Caen and FC Lorient.
