Fabrizio Romano has claimed that West Ham are still keen to sign Kurt Zouma as Chelsea push ahead with their interest in Sevilla ace Jules Kounde.
Hammers boss David Moyes is desperately trying to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
A move to sign Nikola Milenkovic failed at the final hurdle.
And then West Ham switched their attention to Zouma (Jacob Steinberg).
Links have gone quiet over the past week. But it seems as though the Hammers are still very much after the French centre-back.
Fabrizio Romano shares West Ham Kurt Zouma chase update
The respected Italian journalist has suggested that the Hammers are still keen on the 26-year-old with Chelsea trying to push him out the door to make way for Jules Kounde:
And then Sport Italia journalist Gianluigi Longari leant credence to those claims by suggesting that Zouma joining West Ham could be imminent:
Let’s hope that David Moyes manages to bring Zouma to the London Stadium before the transfer window slams shut.
The Chelsea ace is a top class player. The Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg reckons that the 26-year-old will cost around £25 million.
That’s very good value.
And with just nine days remaining before the transfer window slams shut, West Ham had better get their act together.
