Report: West Ham set for meeting next week to sign 26-year-old who recently left the PL

West Ham United are seemingly very close to signing Denis Zakaria from Juventus this summer.

According to Tuttosport, Juventus sporting director Giovanni Manna is due to fly out to London from Turin next week to thrash out a deal with West Ham for Denis Zakaria.

It was claimed earlier today that Juve have lowered their demands for the 26-year-old to just £15.4 million.

Hammers manager David Moyes must strengthen his central midfield ranks before the season starts, with Declan Rice almost certain to leave the London Stadium.

And it seems as though the Scot is closing in on Zakaria as his first signing of the summer transfer window…

Tuttosport reckon that the Juventus sporting director will fly out to London next week to try and conclude a deal that would see the Swiss midfielder move to the London Stadium from Turin.

I think that Zakaria will be a very smart addition for the Hammers this summer.

However, the 26-year-old is in no way good enough to replace Rice single-handedly.

That said, Zakaria would be able to offer West Ham a real level of physicality in the middle of the park, and if he is signed alongside someone like Ibrahim Sangare or Sofyan Amrabat then we’ll be winning.

The Switzerland international has incredible amounts of energy, dynamism and athleticism.

Sure, he wasn’t great for Chelsea but he wasn’t really given the chance to prove his worth on a regular basis in all fairness to him.

And if West Ham manage to sign Zakaria for around £15 million or so this summer, I think it will be a very good deal for us.
