The transfer window doesn’t close until Thursday and the indications are that West Ham United are looking to add to their squad before the reference window slams firmly shut.

The latest insinuation, coming courtesy of the popular tabloid publication, the Mirror, is that the Hammers are looking to add a capable defensive midfielder to the squad.

According to our referenced source, the player in question is Carlos Sanchez.

Sanchez, a 32-year-old Colombian, is currently on the books of Fiorentina but spent the whole of last season on loan at the Spanish side, Espanyol.

Interestingly, although we have no immediate recollection of this, Sanchez has experience of playing in England, after a spell with Aston Villa.

If the deal is to be concluded it obviously has its pros and cons.

At 32-years-of-age, the player who goes by the nickname of ‘The Rock’ is no spring chicken and would be more of a short-term solution as opposed to a long-term solution.

But, at six-feet tall his physical presence, allied with his experience, could prove to be invaluable as, this season, the Hammers look to make an impact in the Premier League as opposed to skirting around the relegation battle as has been the case in the last two seasons.
