West Ham are reportedly ‘interested’ in signing AS Monaco midfielder Aleksandr Golovin. 

The Hammers are believed to have sounded out the 25-year-old as David Moyes looks to bolster the ranks at the London Stadium. 

Despite the apparent need for reinforcements in defence and attack, the Irons continued to be linked with numerous midfielders. 

According to a report from RB Sport, as cited by Mundo Mónaco on Twitter, the East London club are keen on the Russian ace. 

The report claims that West Ham have begun ‘consultations and collecting information’ on a potential deal for the 45-cap international. 

This season Golovin – described as a ‘playmaker’ by an impressed Jose Mourinho – has scored three times and provided five assists in 23 appearances across all competitions. 


Valued at £22.5million and under contract in France until 2024 (Transfermarkt), any move for the Russian would likely be an expensive outlay for the Hammers. 

Named player of the year in 2017/18 for CSKA Moscow, Golovin has the pedigree to succeed in the Premier League. 

Capable of operating in a variety of roles and boasting a vast range of strong attributes, should Moyes want the player it’s difficult to rail against previous judgement calls. 

Already a vastly experienced operator, whilst it may not be the priority in terms of position, the club would certainly be adding a high-quality attacking option to the squad.
