Diego Rolan is a name that has long been linked with the Premier League. The Uruguayan striker has seen his name mentioned with plenty of potential switches to English football over the years and with good reason.
The 25-year-old is fast and strong with a good eye for goal. During his time with Bordeaux, he showed a good eye for goal and a move to the UK always seemed a possibility.
This summer, West Ham should definitely consider bringing Rolan in.
The striker spent last season on loan at Malaga, working under the Hammers new director of football Mario Husillos. It was effectively a stop-gap loan, with a deal to join Deportivo La Coruna in the summer already agreed.
However, as reported by L’Equipe this week that deal has collapsed and Rolan remains a Bordeaux player for the time being.
His future at the club would still appear bleak and West Ham could offer him a perfect escape. Husillos now knows Rolan well and the Uruguayan would add an extra dimension to the striking department at West Ham.
Goals would not necessarily flow with him at the club. But he is a hard-working and robust forward who will quickly win over the Hammers fans with his work-rate and belief.
If he is available on the cheap, then West Ham supremo Husillos should plan a reunion at the London Stadium.
