West Ham To Rumble Liverpool Plans For Gregoire Defrel
It has been reported that West Ham United are plotting a January swoop for Sassuolo’s Gregoire Defrel.
The French striker has emerged on the radar of Slaven Bilic as he looks to strengthen his defence this winter.
Liverpool have been scouting Defrel of late but the Hammers are hoping they can hijack the Reds’ potential pursuit.
In an interesting twist, Defrel was signed by Sassuolo in the summer of 2015 to replace Simone Zaza, who left for Juventus, and is now on loan with West Ham.
Zaza has been a huge flop in East London and could be offloaded in the January window with Defrel again acting as his replacement.
