“My sources have told me that the Club are very close to making their fourth signing of the summer and hope the player will be ready to sign a contract in the near future.My understanding is that he was one of the best defenders in Europe last season and will be an exciting new addition to the West Ham United squad.”
The centre back is widely thought to be Angelo Ogbonna from Juventus.
Ogbonna has reportedly agreed to join West Ham on a four-year contract with West Ham worth two million Euros per year in wages or around £27,700 per week. The left-sided centre back moved to Juventus in 2013 having signed from Serie A side Torino. He has made 41 appearances for Juventus and has 10 international caps.
