West Ham United: Kurt Zouma has priority to join Irons -West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to a report by the Daily Mail, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma’s current ‘priority’ is to join West Ham United across London.

Only true Hammers get 10/10 in this ultimate summer transfer quiz...how much did West Ham pay to sign Morgan Amalfitano on deadline day in 2014?

It is believed that snapping up a new centre-back is now manager David Moyes’ top priority ahead of 2021/22 before he swoops for a striker or attacking midfield player.

Along with Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic, the 26-year-old is on the agenda as this news emerges on the Chelsea player’s stance.

The Latest: Zouma has ‘priority’ to join West Ham…

As per the Daily Mail, Zouma’s ‘priority’ is to sign for West Ham this summer as he seeks a move across the English capital.

However, Chelsea value the player at around £25m and it remains to be seen whether the Irons go that high to secure his services.

Zouma, for his part, wants a move to east London and even has his ‘heart set’ on that switch over being included in any kind of swap deal as the Blues eye Jules Kounde.

The Verdict: Get it done…

The 26-year-old would undoubtedly be a brilliant defensive addition for Moyes going by his credentials and exploits last season. He averaged an impressive 90.9% pass accuracy out from the back for Chelsea over 22 Premier League starts, highlighting his composure and assurance as a defender (WhoScored).

Furthermore, among Moyes’ squad, only Tomas Soucek (6.2) and former Irons player Sebastien Haller (4.2) averaged more successful aerial duels per game than Zouma (3.6) in the English top flight.

Lauded as a ‘beast of a player’ by former England international and Chelsea legend John Terry (Instagram Live via Tribuna), the Frenchman could definitely prove to be a brilliant signing if West Ham can get it done.
