West Ham may turn their attention to Poland’s Jakub Kiwior in their search for defensive options. 

That is according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who understands that the Hammers could be looking to move for a defence-bolstering option as early January, when the winter transfer window reopens.

It is Jones’ understanding that Kiwior stands as a potential option as we venture ever closer to January.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the insider said: 

“It is a position we know that they’re looking to strengthen, so suitable options are being explored at the moment. He is one of the names to look out for.”

Defence-bolstering Kiwior

In simplistic terms, Kiwior is a pure stopper and would as the enabler for a ball-playing defender like Aguerd to sweep up the ball to commence attacks from deep.

As an option out of possession, the Polish World Cup star is outstanding in the defensive third and serves as a no-nonsense centre-back in the mould of a defender from yesteryear. 

The 22-year-old averages around 3.07 clearances per game, with a healthy average of 1.72 interceptions per game also prevailing. 

The majority of his 49.68 touches come in and around the defensive third and penalty area, with his combined touch total of 31.55 touches in the deeper areas evidencing this.

£25million Kiwior possesses a defensive style that David Moyes would adore, so this is definitely an option for the Hammers in January.
