West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to links with Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.

In other news…Report: David Moyes performs U-turn, doesn’t want to sell 28-year-old any more

The news broke yesterday that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 26-year-old Blues centre-back to the London Stadium this summer.

Sky Sports were first to report on the news that West Ham were in talks to sign the Frenchman from Chelsea.

The East London outfit are allegedly prepared to pay around £20 million for Zouma.

That would be great value for the Hammers but the West London outfit allegedly want upwards of £25 million for the Champions League winner.

 

In 24 Premier League outings for Chelsea last season, Zouma averaged 0.7 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 3.8 clearances per game. He also won an average of 3.6 aerial duels per match (Who Scored).

Some have questioned the Frenchman’s passing ability but his stats last season dispel the myth that he isn’t great with the ball at his feet.

The 26-year-old made 74 passes on average per game last season and recorded a mightily impressive completion rate of 90.9% (Who Scored).

West Ham fans really want Zouma signed

We think that Zouma would be a stunning addition to Moyes’s ranks.

And it seems as though the West Ham fans agree…
