West Ham could make a last minute move for a French wonder-kid on deadline day.

Bar one or two positions, David Moyes seems to be extremely happy with his starting XI. He has a team that is more than capable of competing for European football consistently but, unfortunately, football is about much more than your best team. You need substitutions who can impact a game, players who can fill in when others are unavailable and a whole squad who is willing to give their absolute everything everytime they step on the pitch – West Ham simply do not have that.

Clearly this is something the club are trying to work on by targeting young, hungry players who can eventually transition into being starters. According to The Sun, one such player is French centre-back Etienne Kinkoue.

The Le Havre defender has only played 15 professional league games but is already attracting clubs from all over Europe.

He is expected to cost just £10 million which could be well within the Hammers range despite their limited budget. Obviously, things would have to move quickly but with both Benrahma and Fornals fairly close to a move away, they really need to prioritise a winger over anything else.

Obviously Kinkoue is incredibly raw and probably needs more time to develop, but he is exactly the type of player West Ham should be looking at going forward. We have an incredibly strong foundation, if we build upon it correctly we could enjoy success for years to come and he would be perfect for that. It is a big price for someone so inexperienced, but it could turn out to be a bargain,
