The Hammers transfer business is finally well underway.
David Moyes has brought Alphonse Areola and Kurt Zouma to the London Stadium.
Nikola Vlasic and Jesse Lingard will hopefully follow the French duo.
And now it seems as though a top-class left-back could be en route as well.
West Ham to sign Tagliafico?
De Telegraaf reckon that the Hammers have agreed to sign the left-back on a four-year deal for around £10 million. All that is left to agree is personal terms with the player himself.
West Ham desperately need to bring in more adequate competition and cover for Aaron Cresswell.
And Tagliafico for just £10 million would be a quite simply sensational signing for the Hammers.
The 28-year-old is a vastly experienced defender. He has played at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.
The Argentina international has racked up 13 goals and 19 assists in 141 appearances for Ajax (Transfermarkt).
In 25 Eredivisie outings last season, Tagliafico racked up three goals and four assists. He averaged 2.5 tackles, 1.7 interceptions and 2.1 clearances per game. He averaged 52.6 passes per game with an impressive completion rate of 85.9% (Who Scored).
Let’s just hope we manage to get this one over the line because Tagliafico will be a truly brilliant addition to Moyes’s ranks.
