You can see just how tight it is at the bottom of the Premier League table simply by taking a look at West Ham. On the surface it looks as if the Hammers are sitting pretty in 11th spot, looking up towards a top half finish at the very least.

Unfortunately for David Moyes it is the threat from below that is likely still troubling him, especially given the fact that his side are just four points above the relegation zone.

It is little surprise then that the veteran coach is looking to bolster his squad, and midfield seems to be a key area for the former Manchester United boss.

Leander Dendoncker, according to Sky Sports, is the man he wants, but the 22-year old likely won’t come cheap from Anderlecht. The Belgian has made 20 appearances in the Pro League so far this season, and has established himself as an exciting talent in the middle of the pitch, despite his tender age.

His exploits also haven’t gone unnoticed by the Belgian national team hierarchy, and Dendoncker has already reached four caps for his country. A move to the Premier League would certainly be a great way to accelerate his career, and he could help West Ham ensure top flight survival.
