According to reports from Denmark, as shared by club insiders Claret & Hugh, West Ham United will sign Frederik Alves next month as news emerges personal terms have been agreed and the player has already said goodbye to his teammates.
Alves will join Hammers in January
Alves, who was pictured in London not too long ago when he was at the centre of rumours linking him to West Ham, is now set to complete his move to the Premier League in January as this massive update emerges.
The 21-year-old, allegedly close to signing from Silkeborg, will potentially come in as a back up centre-half with the view of becoming a star for the future depending on his progression.
Transfer Tavern take
At the moment, David Moyes seems set on his back three of Fabian Balbuena, Angelo Ogbonna and Aaron Cresswell when the trio are fully fit – but Alves could provide some competition in future as GSB make a long term investment.
As per this huge update, it appears West Ham have their first January signing all but completed – but only time will tell whether he can become a star for the east Londoners.
News of a first January addition could gift Moyes a boost for the season ahead as one more option enters the fold, especially given the Premier League wide injury crisis.
