Jonathan Tah has broken his silence ahead of a potential summer transfer to West Ham United.

West Ham manager David Moyes is allegedly keen to bring Jonathan Tah to the London Stadium in the summer transfer window, according to the likes of the Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg.

And it has been suggested that the smart money will be on Tah, 27, arriving at West Ham imminently.

Moyes needs to bring a top-class central defender to the Hammers after a move for Harry Maguire failed to materialise.

And Tah is definitely someone on our radar. Would he be open to a move to East London though?

With Leverkusen prepared to sell the 27-year-old centre-back, a move to the London Stadium may well be happening. However, the German is clearly non-committal either way.

Tah spoke to Kicker about his future with Bayer Leverkusen, and didn’t really rule anything out:

“The fact is: as of now, I’m here. And that’s my full focus. But I’ve said the whole time that anything can happen, but doesn’t have to, as long as the transfer window is open.”

I think that Jonathan Tah would be a superb signing for West Ham this summer.

Standing at 6ft 5in tall, he is an absolute giant and is incredibly strong in the air. The German possesses an impressive physique and is ideally suited to Premier League football.

In 33 Bundesliga appearances for Leverkusen last season, Tah averaged 1.2 interceptions and 3.5 clearances per game. He also won an average of 1.7 aerial duels per match (Who Scored).

Bleacher Report once described him as an ‘outstanding’ defender, and they’re spot on. He would be an elite long-term replacement for Angelo Ogbonna at the London Stadium.

Leverkusen allegedly want around £17 million for Jonathan Tah (Sky Germany), and if West Ham manage to pick him up for that kind of money, it will be sensational business for us.
