The 4th Official
In a recent report, Calciomercato mentioned that West Ham United are among several clubs hoping to recruit VfL Wolfsburg winger Josip Brekalo who is currently playing on loan at Torino. It is understood that the Hammers could face competition in the form of Atletico Madrid, Eintracht Frankfurt, Southampton, Atalanta and Napoli in pursuit of the Croat wing wizard.
Brekalo’s Impressive Loan Spell At Turin
Brekalo is experiencing a decent campaign in Italian football after putting in some eye-catching displays on the left side of Torino’s attack. The 23-year-old has registered eight goals and three assists in 34 matches for the Italian outfit this season across all fronts.
The Zagreb-born talent has given a good account of himself by averaging 1.4 shots, 2.0 key passes, 1.2 crosses and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after making 77.9% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

Is Brekalo A Decent Fit For West Ham United Boss David Moyes?
Brekalo is having a bright loan spell in Italy where he has proven his worth as a decent dribbler with the ball. He can whip in some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty box and can engineer a few meaningful chances for his teammates in the final third. Brekalo is versatile enough to play in any position across the frontline.
At 23, Brekalo has got a promising future ahead of him and could help the East London outfit push for a top-four finish in the Premier League. Thus, Moyes would be wise to try everything in his power to bring the talented winger to the English capital during this summer transfer period.
