Taking to Twitter, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has backed an ExWHUemployee transfer update which involves West Ham defensive target Kurt Zouma.
The Lowdown: West Ham hold Zouma talks…
Sky Sports broke news last week that West Ham had entered talks with Chelsea over signing the centre-back as manager David Moyes continues his search for defensive reinforcements.
The Latest: Romano backs Zouma update…
Taking to Twitter, Romano has now backed club insider ExWHUemployee’s update on the talks to sign Zouma this summer.
Ex believes that the move, as it stands, is currently off with the 26-year-old having turned down West Ham – citing the fact situations can change at an almost hourly rate (Twitter).
Reliable transfer journalist Romano has supported this news out of east London whilst going one step further into detail.
He says that Ex’s update is in fact ‘correct‘ and personal terms were never agreed over his signing.
As of now, West Ham are ‘already’ focusing on other central defensive targets according to the reporter.
The Verdict: Blow for West Ham?
There is little arguing that Zouma would have been a brilliant defensive addition for Moyes.
The colossal 6 foot 3 defender averaged a superb 90.9% pass accuracy out from the back for Chelsea over 2020/2021 in the Premier League and even managed to chip in with five goals going forward (WhoScored).
These reliable reports come as another blow for West Ham as the transfer window deadline looms on August 31.
Attention should now quickly shift to Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, who could leave Italy for as little as €15 million (£12.7m) according to Charlie Eccleshare.
