Hammers manager David Moyes desperately needs to sign a top-class central defender this summer, having sold Craig Dawson in January and with Angelo Ogbonna set to turn 36 at the end of the season.

Key Sullivan source claims smart money is now on West Ham signing Jonathan Tah

It seems as though the 27-year-old German could very well be Hammers bound this summer.

Sean Whetstone took to Twitter after a deal to sign Harry Maguire collapsed last night:

I would be more than happy if West Ham signed Jonathan Tah this summer. The thought of him lined up alongside Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd is a very exciting one indeed.

The Germany international is an absolute giant. Standing at 6ft 5in tall, he is dominating in the air but fairly quick along the ground as well. In addition to that he is really strong in the tackle.

Tah reads the game exceptionally well, and has plenty of experience in playing at the very highest level for a sustained period of time with Leverkusen.

Jonathan Tah will be a real hit at West Ham if he does end up moving to the London Stadium, I have no doubts in my mind about that. Especially for the £17 million fee that has been quoted by the likes of Sky Germany.
