West Ham United have allegedly made an initial enquiry for Hertha Berlin centre-back Jordan Torunarigha.
That’s according to a report from Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg who claims that the 24-year-old defender could be available for just €5 million (£4 million) this summer.
Jordan Torunarigha spent the season just gone on loan with KAA Gent and the Belgian side are keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer, as are Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.
So West Ham will face plenty of competition for the three-capped Germany international centre-back.
Hammers boss David Moyes is clearly very keen to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
The Scot is already closing in on a deal to bring Rennes ace Nayef Aguerd to East London (90min). And it appears as though the Hammers boss wants to strengthen his defensive ranks even further still…
West Ham make Jordan Torunarigha enquiry
The Hammers have made initial contact with Hertha Berlin to sign the 6ft 3in centre-back.
And we have been told that it will take £4 million to prise him away from the Bundesliga side.
That’s according to Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg:
For that price, we believe that Torunarigha would be an exceptional addition for West Ham.
Standing at 6ft 3in at all, the German is very strong in the air but he’s quick along the ground as well.
Crucially, he’s left-footed, and can also play at left-back, so Moyes would be getting a top-class player for just £4 million who can operate in two positions! It’s surely a no-brainer.
If West Ham do sign Jordan Torunarigha as well as Aguerd, we will be in a very strong position defensively for the next five years or so.
The future really is bright at the London Stadium.
