He is set for a medical tomorrow and will sign a five-year contract with the Hammers.

The West Ham fans will be buzzing as and when this one is officially announced.

Zouma is an elite defender. He has won two Premier League titles and has a Champions League winner’s medal to his name.

The 26-year-old is an absolute warrior, has power and pace in abundance and has real athleticism.

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).
