It emerged recently that the Hammers could be preparing a move for Villarreal left-back Pervis Estupinan this summer.
Villarreal have one too may left-backs, with Alfonso Pedraza and Alberto Moreno at the club, potentially meaning Estupinan could be offloaded this summer.
And with David Moyes looking to strengthen his back line ahead of a return to Europe, it has been reported by Corriere dello Sport that West Ham could make a move.
Whether West ham will make a move remains to be seen, but in the meantime, Estupinan has been in action for the Yellow Submarine.
The Ecuadorian came off the bench in Villarreal’s impressive Super Cup performance against Chelsea, a performance that ended in a penalty shootout defeat.
But Estupinan impressed off the bench, coming close to scoring, though Edouard Mendy kept out his effort.
Here’s how West Ham fans reacted to his performance amid those transfer links.
Someone tell me if those estupiñan rumors were actually true
