‘6 tackles, 2 clearances’ – West Ham summer signing shines and offers Moyes a conundrum

Thilo Kehrer played an important role as Germany kept their World Cup hopes alive and in the process, he handed West Ham boss David Moyes some food for thought, writes the TBR.

The defender has been utilised in a right-back role by Hansi Flick. It’s a position that he’s clearly thriving in and Moyes might be intrigued.

West Ham signed the enforcer from PSG for £10 million in the summer. He’s started 13 games for the Hammers and the last three saw him play as a right-back.

Interestingly, Moyes might now be tempted to switch the £92,000-a-week star on a permanent basis. West Ham might appreciate his versatility but he looks at home on the right.

Against Spain, he was extremely impressive and looked like a player who has been operating at right-back for many years.

Who Scored showcased that he made six tackles – the most of any German player, two interceptions and two clearances.

He was defensively sound and Moyes will have been delighted with his player’s performance during the game.

Kehrer has adapted nicely to life in the Premier League. He is looking like a very shrewd addition and is enjoying a decent World Cup.

The player is only 26-years-old and West Ham have added him to their ranks ahead of his best years.
