According to a recent report by Sky Sports, West Ham are in talks to sign Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma on a permanent contract.
The belief is that while talks to sign Nikola Milenkovic may have fallen apart, the Hammers are still confident in their ability to get something over the line with Zouma. Chelsea, who are now European champions, are set to have a challenging transfer period for the remainder of the summer transfer window as they attempt to stage a serious Premier League title challenge.
West Ham have already managed to break into the Europa League, but if they can continue to strengthen their squad, there’s no reason they can’t maintain this momentum.
Zouma has never been afraid of getting stuck and letting forwards know he’s there, which is exactly the kind of intensity West Ham fans want to see on their side.
