Do West Ham United need another centre-back?

That’s my main takeaway from the latest reports coming out of West Ham United right now.

Looking in all the wrong places to try and fix a pretty big problem.

According to a report in The Athletic, West Ham are keeping tabs on two left-backs from two fellow London clubs, namely Sead Kolasinac at Arsenal and Emerson Palmieri at Chelsea.

If you just take a look at their statistical comparison on WhoScored for instance in the Premier League last year, you’ll see that whilst Emerson leads in most categories, it’s either relatively even or Cresswell and Masuaku aren’t too far behind and Kolasinac bringing up the rear.

But with the Athletic report claiming that Declan Rice could be used as part of the deal to make it happen, I wouldn’t be inclined to sacrifice someone as important as Rice to make it happen.

I can understand the club’s desire to fix the defence, after all it was the 5th worst in the division last year, but it’s not the flanks that need to be addressed the most, it’s the centre-backs that need the most attention.
