West Ham United rekindle move for Aaron Wan-Bissaka

West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer.

According to a report from The Times, West Ham United have decided to rekindle their interest in 26-year-old Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka heading into the summer transfer window.

Wan-Bissaka has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United, even though he was a regular last season. But with Diogo Dalot being the first-choice right-back, he needs to leave the club to start regularly. A move to West Ham could be ideal for him, although other high-profile clubs have also shown interest in him.

The Hammers need more quality and depth at the back, and the Manchester United defender would be the ideal fit for them. He has attracted a lot of criticism at Old Trafford because of his limitations going forward. Defensively, he remains a reliable performer for the Red Devils. He could prove to be the ideal upgrade on Vladimir Coufal at West Ham.

Manchester United paid £50 million for the defender when they signed him from Crystal Palace, and it remains to be seen whether they are ready to sell him this summer. They will have to replace the player if he moves on in the coming weeks. The Red Devils cannot hope to get into the new season with Diogo Dalot as the only right-back at the club.

Wan-Bissaka would be a useful addition

The former Crystal Palace defender will look to play regularly and get his career back on track. West Ham could provide him with that opportunity, and he is likely to be attracted to the idea of joining the Londoners.

West Ham have been competing in European football over the last two seasons, and they have brought in a quality manager like Julen Lopetegui. There is no reason why they cannot continue to push for European qualification in the coming seasons as well. The Manchester United defender could find the Hammers as an attractive destination.

It will be interesting to see if West Ham follow up on their interest with an official proposal to sign the defender now. Manchester United will hope to recoup as much as possible for the full back but they will have to be reasonable with their demands. It is highly unlikely that any club would be willing to pay close to what they paid for the defender when they brought him in.
