West Ham United have set their sights on securing the services of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ right-back, Nelson Semedo, according to reports from Football Transfers, writes the HITC. The Hammers are exploring the possibility of signing Semedo in the upcoming January transfer window, with indications that they have already initiated discussions about a potential deal.
The interest in Semedo comes amidst uncertainties surrounding Vladimir Coufal’s future at West Ham. Coufal has been informed that his playing time with the club cannot be guaranteed, prompting West Ham to consider alternatives. The club is actively exploring the prospect of bringing Semedo on board as early as January 2024.
Nelson Semedo, a versatile player with experience at both right-back and right wing-back, has featured in seven Premier League matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the current season. The 29-year-old, formerly of Barcelona, has proven his adaptability and potential to contribute effectively in different defensive roles.
As of now, West Ham United occupies the seventh position in the Premier League table, amassing 13 points from seven matches. Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers currently find themselves in the 15th spot, having collected seven points from seven games. They are merely four points ahead of the relegation zone, making the potential departure of Semedo an interesting development to watch as the January transfer window approaches.
