West Ham eye Tottenham flop who has missed over double the number of games he’s played through injury.

There’s something about West Ham and injury prone players, it’s like an addiction. The club just can’t keep their hands off any player who’s got the potential to be a great player but is held back by constant injuries.

Unfortunately, this is something that looks likely to continue despite Tim Steidten now being at the club, and something that Julen Lopetegui may have to deal with.

With the Hammers desperately needing to bring in some homegrown players this Summer, it makes sense for them to target those whose contracts are coming to an end. According to Claret and Hugh, one such player the club are considering is Ryan Sessegnon.

The former Fulham fullback moved to Tottenham all the way back in 2019 for a staggering £25 million. In those 5 years, he’s only played 57 games, missing 127 through injury – that’s over double. While he does possess a lot of the attributes a good fullback does, particularly pace, his injury record makes signing him a massive risk, even on a free transfer.

Realistically, the only way it would be worth taking a chance on him is if it was a pay-as-you-play contract. If that was the case, then there would be very little to lose on West Ham’s part, especially when they need to bolster their squad so desperately.

Interestingly, he is someone who can play in a variety of positions and suits multiple systems which could make him a great option to have for Lopetegui as he experiments with what works at West Ham. If he can also somehow keep Sessegnon fit and help him find his form, then he could be a sensational signing for no transfer fee.
