Good signing for West Ham United?

With Manuel Lanzini out injured, West Ham do need a replacement for the Argentina international, at least in the short term.

Antonio Candreva of Italy looks on during a training session at Manchester City Football Academy on March 25, 2018 in Manchester, England.

However, the Hammers would be wise not to make a move for Candreva, who is 31 years of age and is past his prime.

That Inter are (reportedly) willing to part company with the former Lazio star should raise concern among the West Ham chiefs.

Of course, the Italy international could still do a good job for West Ham, but the former Udinese man is not at the level of Lanzini.
