Chelsea man is Moyes’ top target

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma remains David Moyes’ top target for the central defender position this summer!

The Hammers have been linked with a variety of centre-backs in this transfer window, but talks regarding other potential signings have fallen somewhat by the wayside. 

Talks for Nikola Milenkovic, the Fiorentina defender, have broken down after David Moyes decided against a deal at the 11th hour.

And our club insiders have now confirmed that Moyes’ top target all along has been Zouma, who is available for a fee of around £25m in this transfer window.

However, the Frenchman’s wage demands are stalling a deal, and it remains to be seen if that bridge can be crossed.

We have been told that signing Zouma remains unlikely, but boss Moyes will continue to try to get a deal over the line.

He has fallen down the pecking order under manager Thomas Tuchel and was on the bench for the opening weekend win over Crystal Palace.

In total, he has made 151 appearances for the Blues since his arrival in 2014.

  1. Not worth what he wants paying in my opinion.No way. He can stay at Chelsea on what he gets now -which would be less than he would have got at West Ham, very sensible.DAH !!!!!!

  2. I find that hard to believe, Zouma has a mistake in him and is inconsistent. He is also very expensive on wages if reports are true.
