West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing 25-year-old American international Mark McKenzie from KRC Genk this summer.

According to reputed Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Mark McKenzie is on the radar of West Ham United following his impressive performances for KRC Genk this season, and it will be interesting to see if the Hammers can get the deal done.

The East London club are currently in talks with his agents regarding a potential move. It is no secret that West Ham need to bring in defensive reinforcements, and McKenzie would be a quality addition. He has proven his quality in Belgium, and the defender seems ready for the step up to the premier league.

The 25-year-old certainly has the physicality to thrive in English football, and it will be interesting to see if West Ham can secure an agreement with the Belgian club for Mark McKenzie. West Ham have also shown interest in other centre-back, including Mario Hermoso.

McKenzie will be tempted to join West Ham

The opportunity to move to the Premier League will be an attractive one for the American international. It would be a massive step up in his career, and the 25-year-old will look to test himself at a higher level.

West Ham are currently competing in the UEFA Europa League, and they could provide Mark McKenzie with the platform to compete for trophies. The defender will be hoping to hit the ground running in the Premier League and establish himself as a key player for West Ham. If the transfer goes through.

The Hammers certainly have the financial muscle to get the deal done as well, and it will be interesting to see if they follow up on their interest with an official proposal to sign the defender.

The Hammers have looked vulnerable at the back this season, and they will need to tighten up defensively if they want to do well next season. Signing a quality central defender should be one of their top priorities.

West Ham should look to invest in a quality striker as well. They need to bring in an upgrade on players like Michail Antonio and Danny Ings. If they can plug the gaps at both ends of the pitch, there is no reason why they cannot push for European qualification and domestic trophies next season.
