’23 assists in 80 games’ – West Ham join Newcastle and Man City in the race for Stuttgart left-back

    The 24-year-old defender Borna Sosa has emerged on the radars of various European clubs, but the most concrete interest comes from the Premier League. At the end of the previous campaign Chelsea considered Borna Sosa as the direct replacement for Marcos Alonso, however the Blues move towards the Croatian has faded since then.

    Now West Ham are claimed to be the front-runners for the services of Sosa, according to the Croatian publication Index. The player is tied with the contract until the summer 2025, but VfB Stuttgart are reportedly ready to agree for the compensation of around €20 million.

    During four seasons with Stuttgart, Borna Sosa featured in 83 games for the club and scored three goals. However, he also delivered 23 goal assists or one assist every 3.6 game.

    No wonder why David Moyes is keen on bringing the player. The Hammers let Arthur Masuaku go this summer, while the primary option for the left-back slot Aaron Cresswell has been struggling with form last season.
