ExWHUemployee has given an update on the state of play regarding Kurt Zouma’s impending move from Chelsea to West Ham United on Twitter, stating that “the deal is close to being done”.
Of course, the 26-year-old defender was in inspired form for the Blues last campaign, managing to notch an impressive five goals in 36 appearances across the term [Transfermarkt].
Looking set to move on this summer, the Frenchman has been continuously linked with a move to West Ham, who have been keen on the 6 foot 3 ace since the start of August [Sky Sports].
Would Zouma be a good signing for WHUFC?
Giving an update on the situation to his large audience on Twitter, ExWHUemployee stated the following: “I believe that talks regarding Zouma have been very positive over night. The quote I was given overnight is that the deal is very much alive (seeking further clarity on that) but knowing the source this means the deal is close to being done”.
Despite this positive update, it is understandable that loads of West Ham United fanatics took to social media to vent their frustration at the deal dragging on for so long, especially when the window is due to close in just a few days.
West Ham United fans react:
Replying to ExWHUemployee on Twitter, here is what some disgruntled Hammers had to say about the news:
“When’s it gonna end Robbie?”
“It amazes me how it has always taken our club as long as it does to get a deal for a player ‘done’ when Man U for example bid for Ronaldo yesterday and he signed for them yesterday lol just feel because of how long we’re taken on Zouma, we won’t sign anyone else lol COYI”
