West Ham may struggle to sign Pierre Ekwah Elimby from Chelsea

The young Frenchman is clearly a top class talent. He’s exactly the kind of signing we should be looking to make. Especially with our deficiencies in central midfield.

As things stand, however, it seems to be very much up in the air as to whether or not West Ham will be able to get a deal done for the Chelsea youngster.
