West Ham United are said to want Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in January.

Gary Cahill of Chelsea looks on during the UEFA Europa League Group L match between Chelsea and Vidi FC at Stamford Bridge on October 4, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

West Ham United fans appear to have mixed views over whether they should sign Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.

The Daily Mirror claim that West Ham want Cahill in the January transfer window.

 

The experienced defender has barely played for Chelsea so far this season, and could be available.

With West Ham on the look out for additions, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are said to be keen on the England international.

And while some West Ham fans are keen to see him snapped up, others feel he wouldn’t offer them much.

West Ham do already have good defensive options, but question marks remain over most of them.

Angelo Ogbonna and Winston Reid have struggled with injury, while Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop are both very young.

West Ham have had mixed success at the back this season, and Cahill could help them tighten up, if he was to arrive.
