West Ham have been one of the busier teams in the summer transfer window so far having signed players to help strengthen most of the areas on the pitch.
However, The Hammers have failed to strengthen their midfield adequately so far although this could all be set to change as the club prepares a bid for dynamic midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic.
Kuzmanovic is currently under contract with Inter Milan but the Serbian international has only featured intermittently for the side forcing him to consider other options.
Having only made 13 appearances in Serie A this season, Kuzmanovic could well be interested in a move to the Premier League in a bid to find regular first team action.
With a reputation that is known through many of the major leagues in Europe, Kuzmanovic could very well give the side an added creative edge in the centre of the park.
It’s this spark that has seen the 25 year old play for a host of top European sides such as Basel, Fiorentina, Stuttgart and Inter Milan.
Whilst he has only made a handful for Inter, Kuzmanovic has proven that he has what it takes to compete at the highest level having made 96 appearances for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga and 76 appearances for Fiorentina in the Premier League.
Alongside this, the midfielder has become a vital piece of the Serbian national team earning 47 caps and scoring 6 goals for his country since making his debut in 2007.
West Ham have yet to make a formal bid for the player although it’s thought that the club do still have the funds to make a move if necessary.
This comes despite the club having already made several major signings this season spending a fair chunk of their transfer and wage budget.
After all, Andy Carroll joined the club for an undisclosed fee after last season’s successful loan spell meanwhile both Razvan Rat and Adrian are likely to drain some of the club’s intended wage allowance despite joining on a free a few weeks ago.
With many people aware of the financial woes that the club suffered just a few years ago, the club will be hoping that the departure of the likes of Carlton Cole and Gary O’Neill will avoid these issues creeping back and upsetting the squad.
If so, then it could mean that we could be seeing the likes of Kuzmanovic strutting their stuff at Upton Park sooner rather than later.
