West Ham eyeing swoop for Shinji Kagawa

Shinji Kagawa news

West Ham are showing an interest in signing Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa. According to Calcio Mercato, via Sports Mole, West Ham and Everton are both keen on bringing Kagawa back to England.

Kagawa has Premier League experience from his time at Manchester United, where he scored six goals in 57 appearances. He is now currently at Dortmund in the Bundesliga and failing to find regular game-time under new boss Lucien Favre.

The likes of Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Jadon Sancho are all ahead of Kagawa in the pecking order, leaving him to contemplate his future in Germany.

The report claims that West Ham could strike a deal for Kagawa at around £11.5m in the January transfer window. The 29-year-old has made over 200 appearances for Dortmund across two spells with the club, scoring 60 goals.

This could be a bargain deal for West Ham as they look to bolster their options in the middle of the park. West Ham have been affected by the injury bugs, players like Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolemko, Lanzini, Carlos Sanchez all have been sidelined for long periods. Experienced veterans like Mark Noble have failed to find form which has affected West Ham. Keeping in mind all these situations, a move for Kagawa would be a gold deal for West Ham.
