Conflicting reports over Zouma wages ahead of expected West Ham move

That’s after a topsy turvy evening which saw conflicting reports with the deal said to have been off at one stage due to a disagreement between West Ham and Chelsea.

There have been conflicting reports online and social media over the salary Zouma will be on at West Ham.

According to several football salary sites such as Spotrac and SalarySport – Zouma is on £46,000 per week at Chelsea.

Reports claimed Hammers would be more or less doubling £46k per week wages but insiders claim he will be highest earner

Reports from France and West Ham insider ExWHUemployee have claimed the 26-year-old will get almost double that at the London Stadium.

But West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh, who have direct contact with co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, have claimed Zouma is actually on £145,000 per week at Chelsea.

And C&H claims he will pick up £120k per week at West Ham, making him the club’s current highest paid player.

Some West Ham fans will be concerned that could ruffle a few feathers among a squad built on togetherness and great team spirit.

Some fans worried Zouma salary could put noses out of joint but in Moyes we trust?

“Now we appear to have reached the final stage of things  with the player set to become the club’s top earner if goes ahead and widespread reports are correct,” Claret and Hugh state.

“He was believed to be on personal terms of around £145k a week at Stamford Bridge and although no figure has been given for the terms offered by West Ham they are believed to be in the region of £120k a week.”

West Ham’s recruitment since Moyes has been handed full control of all football operations has been fantastic.

Hammers fans will be hoping Zouma – the Scot’s prime defensive target all summer – is the latest in a long line of excellent signings.

In other news, ‘Mainstream media bias’ West Ham fans fume at headline and coverage.
