The Belgian would be an excellent addition to the West Ham United squad.

According to a report from Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Valencia are lining up a €30 million (£26.2 million) summer swoop for Borussia Monchengladbach ace Thorgan Hazard, and West Ham should consider revisiting their interest in the Belgian.

The 25-year-old was in fine form for his club this season, chalking up 11 goals and nine assists in 37 appearances in all competitions, and the winger would be an excellent addition to Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.

Hazard, like his older brother Eden, is most comfortable when deployed in the left wing position, but he can play anywhere along the front-line, and he would add a certain level of potency to the Hammers attacking play.

This summer will be a vitally important one for West Ham, and the addition of more quality in the attacking positions will be an absolute must for Pellegrini, if he is to guide his side to a successful campaign next term.

The Belgium international would provide much needed competition for the likes of Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini in the wide attacking areas at the London Stadium, and bringing him to east London would be a real sign of intent by the Hammers.

For the £26.2 million that has been quoted, West Ham have the opportunity to secure themselves a real bargain in today’s ludicrously inflated transfer market, and signing Hazard could turn out to be an acquisition of real significance for Pellegrini, if they do in fact consider a summer swoop for the 25-year-old.
