West Ham United leading the race for Ruslan Malinovskyi

Ruslan Malinovskyi’s time at Atalanta could soon end as a whole host of clubs are lining up to sign him. The reports in England suggested that West Ham are leading the race for Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi.

West Ham United United FC

The 29-year-old has been with Atalanta since 2019, having signed for the club from Genk for 13.6 million euros. He is under contract at Atalanta until the end of this campaign.

The midfielder has banged in one goal and provided two assists in 14 games this term on all fronts.

He is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Ukraine. Malinovskyi has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 7 goals in 51 senior appearances for the Ukraine national team.

Given that his contract is expiring soon and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including West Ham United.

David Moyes is looking to shore up his midfield options and Atalanta’s Malinovskyi happens to be a target. The report claims that West Ham manager has extensively scouted Ruslan Malinovskyi and is considering a move for the midfielder.

There is no doubt that Malinovskyi will take West Ham United’s midfield to a different level.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “West Ham and Tottenham are reportedly keen on Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi. The 29-year-old Ukrainian is said to be eager for a new challenge. Malinovskyi would rather a move to Tottenham to work with Antonio Conte, according to Calciomercato. But Spurs are only reported to be willing to bring the midfielder to the club on loan. However, Atalanta will not consider a temporary deal. That seemingly leaves West Ham in pole position to swoop for the 51-cap international.”

The Hammers will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Malinovskyi to join the club.

Atalanta are not open to loaning him out and are only interested in selling him for a straight cash deal.

Good signing for West Ham United?

The 29-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current West Ham squad and would be a good buy in the winter transfer window.

The Hammers should do everything in their power to sign the in-demand Malinovskyi, who has all the qualities to be a success at the club.

West Ham fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds in the next few weeks.
