Report: West Ham have made contact with Everton over Mason Holgate

West Ham United have made contact with Everton over a potential move for Mason Holgate, according to a report from 90min.

It has been a mixed window at the London Stadium. They have made a couple of impressive signings. However, one is already facing a long spell on the sidelines in Nayef Aguerd.

Aguerd’s injury has left West Ham looking to sign another centre-back in this window. And 90min reports that David Moyes wants a defender who offers plenty of versatility.

According to 90min, the Hammers have now made an enquiry for Holgate. It is suggested that West Ham may only be prepared to let Issa Diop leave if they are able to sign another defender.

West Ham have made contact with Everton over Mason Holgate

Holgate appears to be something of a divisive figure amongst Everton fans. He turns 26 this year and it is probably fair to say that he has not quite realised his full potential.

And with that, a move to the London Stadium may appeal to all parties. The Toffees will probably welcome the chance to boost their transfer kitty given the financial issues that they are currently dealing with.

And he would certainly tick the versatile box for West Ham. Holgate is predominantly a centre-back. But he also has experience playing at right-back and in holding midfield.

He actually scored against West Ham when the two sides met at the London Stadium earlier this year. He is someone capable of ‘brilliant‘ performances.

It would probably not be a signing that would excite the West Ham fanbase. But in light of Aguerd’s injury, they are probably not looking to spend too much on another defender.

So it will be interesting to see if anything comes of the links with Holgate.
