‘Reminds Me Of Declan Rice’ ‘Means Dawson Is Most Likely Leaving’ Fans React As West Ham Enter Battle For Swiss Star

West Ham have made an offer for Borussia Monchengladbach defender Nico Elvedi, according to journalist Andreas Boni.

The Swiss reporter claims that the Hammers are competing with Ligue One side Nice for the player’s signature:

Elvedi has been linked with Arsenal and Manchester City over the past couple of years and at 25, he is still a pretty decent age. However, while many feel the centre-back could be a good signing, fans on Twitter fear he could be a replacement for Craig Dawson:

At the moment, it isn’t known how much Elvedi would cost but it seems like Gladbach may hold out for a decent amount, considering the Swiss international is one of their key players.

With West Ham boss having already signed Nayef Aguerd and Thilo Kehrer to strengthen the centre of defence, bringing in Elvedi would probably suggest a more permanent switch to a back three, with Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma also available for selection.
