Jeremy Ngakia has emerged as a surprise target for Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer transfer window.
The latest reports in England suggest that Borussia Monchengladbach will look to sign ex-West Ham right-back Jeremy Ngakia.
The 19-year-old right-back has played all his life at West Ham. He has made his way through the youth system at the English club and made his senior debut in 2019.
The right-back has featured in 5 matches for West Ham.
Given that his contract expired and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.
Marco Rose wants to sign a new right-back and Jeremy Ngakia is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Borussia Monchengladbach manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
The England international will offer the Borussia Monchengladbach boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Former West Ham United defender Jeremy Ngakia could continue his career in Germany. Ngakia rejected new terms from the Hammers and is now a free agent after coming off contract last week. The defender has been linked with several Premier League rivals, however a move to Germany has also been raised. The Telegraph says Borussia Monchengladbach are interested in Ngakia.”
