West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Aaron Long from New York Red Bulls.
Former USA international midfielder Stuart Holden has given his take on reported West Ham United target Aaron Long on Twitter.
According to ESPN, West Ham are interested in signing Long from Red Bulls in the summer transfer window.
It has been reported that the Hammers made a number of offers for the 26-year-old USA international central defender, but their last bid was in mid-July for $3m (£2.77m).
The defender’s agent, Shaun Higgins, has told ESPN that Red Bulls want as much as €15m (£13.83m) for the 26-year-old.
Former USA international midfielder Holden, who played in England with Sunderland and Bolton Wanderers, has spoken highly of Long, but he does not think that the defender is worth €15m (£13.83m).
Aaron Long is a good defender. Aaron Long can succeed in Europe in a top league. Aaron Long is not worth $15 million on the global market. no chance https://t.co/6rkAJF3Kk0— Stu Holden (@stuholden) August 3, 2019
