|Guerreiro, Baines, Lukaku - The left backs West Ham could target in January transfer window
| sbobet 789 If there is one area of real concern for Manuel Pellegrini eight games into the Premier League season, it may well be the performances of his two left backs at the club. Arthur Masuaku has been the number one in that position so far this season, playing seven times in the Premier League and only missing the defeat to Wolves at the start of September through injury.
Ryan BertrandIf the Hammers want some current Premier League experience then they could certainly have a look at Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand. He's proven at this level and with the Saints struggling, might see an opportunity for a fresh start somewhat appealing. In terms of his defensive capabilities, he's a lot better than Masuaku and probably offers more going forward than Cresswell, so the Hammers could be getting the best of both worlds.
Jordan LukakuHis name should ring a bell to you because he was another player heavily linked sbobet 789 with a move to east London this past summer as part of a deal that saw Felipe Anderson arrive in the capital. Lukaku has been struggling with injury however this season and also a lack of form at the start of the campaign so it would be a big risk. His current contract also expires in 2019 so he could be a cheap fix if that's what Pellegrini is after.
Nacho MonrealAt the other end of the spectrum, the veteran Arsenal defender is another player who is out of contract at the end of this season and as yet, there hasn't been much talk of him being offered a new one. He has been playing regularly for Unai Emery so far this campaign, starting seven out of the eight Premier league games so far and scored against the Hammers in their 3-1 win win at the Emirates early this season. Would Pellegrini want to pair 32-year-old Monreal with 33-year-old Pablo Zabaleta on the other flank, though?
Leighton BainesBaines has lost his place at Everton to summer recruit from Barcelona Lucas Digne and is another player who sbobet 789is out of contract at the end of this season. The left back still has plenty to offer at Premier League level though has struggled with injuries recently. It would be another experienced recruit, a more shrewd defensive mind but also a real threat from set pieces. It's just a question whether he's got the legs any more.
