Marc Roca is set to undergo a medical ahead of his move to Leeds, thus ending any hopes West Ham had of signing him.
That’s according to well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano who claims that Leeds have agreed a €12 million (£10.3 million) deal with Bayern Munich to bring the 25-year-old to Elland Road this summer.
David Moyes wanted to bring Roca to the London Stadium according to a report from The Athletic.
With Marc Roca set for a medical ahead of his proposed move to Leeds though, the Hammers are set to miss out on the Spaniard.
And that’s a real shame. The midfielder would have been a very solid addition to Moyes’s ranks, especially for just £10.3 million…
Marc Roca set for Leeds medical
It seems as though the 25-year-old Bayern ace will be plying his trade in the Premier League next season.
Fabrizio Romano took to his Twitter account this morning to share the news that the 25-year-old is set for a medical ahead of his proposed move to Leeds United:
Missing out on Roca to Leeds will be a big blow for West Ham.
The Spaniard would certainly have provided strong competition and cover for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek at the London Stadium.
He can play in the defensive midfield and orthodox central midfield positions.
Roca is very good technically, as most Spanish midfielders are. The Bayern ace possesses impressive energy and stamina levels and isn’t afraid to get stuck in.
The 25-year-old seems to be more than capable of adapting to Premier League football from the Bundesliga, what with his physical capabilities.
With Roca set for his medical ahead of a supposedly imminent move to join Leeds, it appears as though the West Yorkshire outfit are on the cusp of making a very good signing indeed.
Meanwhile, West Ham are struggling to get deals over the line for some of David Moyes’s key transfer targets this summer.
