West Ham United rival Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool in Riccardo Calafiori chase

West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing 22-year-old Bologna defender Riccardo Calafiori, a target for Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool.

According to a report from the Daily Express, West Ham United will compete with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool for Riccardo Calafiori. The Italian international is reportedly valued at £40 million by Serie A club Bologna.

The Hammers need a quality defender this summer, and the 22-year-old could prove to be a quality acquisition. The youngster is highly rated across Europe, and he has the potential to develop into a top-class defender in the Premier League. It will be interesting to see if he is willing to join West Ham this summer. The 22-year-old has been linked with multiple top clubs, and he will want to join a team capable of winning trophies.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have teams capable of pushing for trophies, and they would be much more exciting destinations for the defender. It remains to be seen whether the Hammers come forward with an offer for the defender in the coming weeks.

They have the financial resources to acquire the funds, but convincing the defender to join them could prove to be very difficult. The 22-year-old needs to compete at the highest level at the stage of his career, and a move to West Ham might not be very appealing for him. It will be interesting to see if the Hammers can get the deal done.

Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool could use Riccardo Calafiori

Arsenal need more depth in central defensive unit, and they need to bring in a reliable partner for William Saliba. The 22-year-old Italian certainly seems like a better option. As for Chelsea, he could be the ideal long-term replacement for Thiago Silva, who left the club earlier this summer.

Liverpool need a quality central defender this summer, especially after the departure of Joel Matip earlier this summer. The 22-year-old will add quality and depth to the Liverpool defence. It will be interesting to see if any of the three clubs decide to make a move for the Italian defender. West Ham manager Julen Lopetegui has a major challenge ahead of himself as he looks to convince the defender to join the club.
