Report: West Ham United offer Angelo Ogbonna to Roma

Upton Park

West Ham United defender Angelo Ogbonna has been offered to Roma, according to reports.

According to a report on Sky Sports, West Ham United have offered Angelo Ogbonna to Roma.

The Italian centre back has only been with the Hammers since the summer, and he has made a fairly impressive start to life at Upton Park.

The former Juventus man has come straight into West Ham’s starting line up, but reports suggest that he still could make a swift exit.

West Ham have little money to spend in January after they recruited a number of players in the summer, and he could be relinquished to make funds.

Roma are known to be on the hunt for defensive additions, and a move for a defender with experience of playing in Serie A could be tempting.

West Ham are well stocked at centre back, but an exit for Ogbonna would still harm the quality of their squad.

The 27-year-old seems to have established his place in the heart of Slaven Bilic’s side's defence, with Winston Reid and James Collins battling it out for another spot.
