West Ham United fans appear to have had a mixed reaction over reports that they are interested in Lazio defender Jordan Lukaku.

The Daily Mail have claimed that West Ham are eyeing up the left-back, as Manuel Pellegrini looks to improve his side’s defence.

Lukaku has been a regular with Lazio this term, and would add pace and power to West Ham’s defence.

But there are Hammers fans who are concerned that Lukaku wouldn’t be an upgrade on Arthur Masuaku, due to his questionable defensive qualities.

New West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has made a slow start in the transfer window since arriving at the London Stadium, but things appear to be stepping up now.

The Hammers have brought in Ryan Fredericks, and he could be followed be a host of new additions for next season.
