West Ham United have finally completed the signing of Chelsea central defender Kurt Zouma in a transfer worth around £29.8 million [Sky Sports].
Enjoying a productive 2020/21 campaign, the 26-year-old registered five goals in 36 appearances as he helped his side win the UEFA Champions League [Transfermarkt].
Now, he has finalised his move across London after a long-drawn-out negotiation process and medical.
Will Zouma be a key player for West Ham?
West Ham were known to be attracted to his situation as far back as the start of August. However, it has taken until the final weekend of the window for David Moyes to get his man.
Zouma will link up with the Irons on a four-year-deal, and one would presume he is arriving to be a sure-fire starter given the price tag.
In light of this news, no wonder loads of West Ham United diehards took to social media to celebrate the news.
West Ham United fans react:
Replying to the official West Ham United Twitter account, here is what the supporters had to say about what one fan called a ‘phenomenal’ transfer:
“Phenomenal signing Welcome to the mighty Hammers @KurtZouma”
“WE SIGNED SOMEONE”
“Loving this Bloke already
