The 13-capped Germany international is on the Hammers’ radar this summer according to ExWHUemployee.

David Moyes is keen to bolster his centre-back ranks at the London Stadium with Fabian Balbuena leaving this summer and Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson 33 and 31 respectively (Claret and Hugh).

West Ham have been linked with a boatload of centre-backs already this summer.

Tah is one of the names who stands out, however.

West Ham target Tah holds preliminary talks with English club

That’s according to a report from Kicker who claim that the 25-year-old has made ‘loose’ contact with an unnamed club in the Premier League.

There is a chance that said club is the Hammers of course.

And if Moyes is truly keen to sign a top-class centre-back, he could do a whole lot worse than Jonathan Tah.

In 27 Bundesliga appearances for Leverkusen last season, Tah averaged 1.1 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and three clearances per game. He also won an average of 2.6 aerial duels per match (Who Scored).

Standing at 6ft 5in tall, the German is physically imposing and is an absolute monster in the air.

He could be available for just €20 million this summer according to Kicker.

That would represent excellent value for West Ham. And if we are not the club in talks with Tah, we should not hesitate to get involved in discussions this summer.
