West Ham set to sign Zouma

After several days of on-again, off-again negotiations with Kurt Zouma, West Ham are finally set to confirm the signing of the Frenchman from London rivals Chelsea. As per the reliable David Ornstein, the deal will set the Hammers back 30 million euros, and the defender will sign a five-year deal at the London stadium.

Zouma rejected the chance to join Sevilla as part of a deal that would have sent Jules Kounde to Chelsea, opting to stay in London instead, with a move to West Ham subsequently forthcoming. It is now expected that Chelsea will complete a swoop for Kounde with the proceeds raised from the sale of Zouma, as per reliable Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Details of Zouma’s move revealed

The previous sticking point in any West Ham deal for Zouma were his wages, with the defender looking to become the highest-paid player at the club. He seems to have gotten his wish, though, with 90min reporting that the stopper will earn around £145,000-per-week, whilst The Athletic report that the fee is closer to £125,000 weekly.

Either way, it represents a massive commitment for West Ham, who will fork out between 6.5 and 7.5 million pounds per year on Zouma, with a total outlay of 60 million pounds if he sees out his contract.

Is Zouma the missing piece in West Ham’s side?
