West Ham United may have signed Pablo Fornals from Villarreal this summer, but many feel they are still lacking some quality in central midfield.

Mark Noble's injury has left West Ham a little exposed in midfield, and some still feel that Pedro Obiang hasn't really been replaced with another squad player.

 

Jack Wilshere's return is a help, but it would be little surprise to see the Hammers move for another midfielder when the January transfer window opens.

It now seems that West Ham have been recommended a new midfielder at some point recently, but he won't be available in January – as he's just signed for Bayern Munich.

Bayern snapped up Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mickael Cuisance this weekend, signing the Frenchman for a fee of around €10million (£9.1million), as reported by DW.

The 20-year-old heads to the Allianz Arena to try and fulfil his potential, having been touted as a future French international thanks to his outstanding quality on the ball.

Now, ex-Hammers midfielder Don Hutchison – who commentates on German football – claims he actually told West Ham to sign Cuisance, highlighting his wand of a left foot, but they seemingly didn't follow up on his recommendation.
