Our West Ham supporting punters here at the Football Transfer Tavern are celebrating wildly by the dartboard, as it looks like Slaven Bilic has hit another transfer bullseye by acquiring Juventus defender, Angelo Ogbonna.
Indeed, according to sources such as Football Italia, it is strongly believed that the powerful centre half has agreed to join West Ham United, as Bilic, David Gold and David Sullivan all look to continue to add more depth in time for the Hammers season, where they will of course also compete in the Europa League.
It was only less than 24 hours ago that the Liverpool Echo were reporting that Everton had not given up hope of landing Ogbonna, yet their hopes of landing him have taken a big blow as it seems that West Ham are now the firm frontrunners.
If Ogbonna signs, he will join James Tomkins, Winston Reid and James Collins in what is arguably a solid group of centre halves, who should be able to cope with the vast amount of games the Hammers fans hope they compete in this season.
Of course, these fans will also hope they continue to strengthen in other attacking areas, which, if they do, could certainly go a long way in establishing themselves as a solid top 8 Premier League club.
West Ham fans…. What do you make of this news? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
