Wolves Want £40 million

West Ham United are targeting Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Max Kilman as a key defensive reinforcement this summer.

Wolves skipper Max Kilman has emerged as West Ham’s top target for their defensive overhaul. Kilman, acquired by Wolves on a free transfer in 2018, has become a crucial player, evidenced by his 150 appearances and recent captaincy following Ruben Neves’ departure in 2023. His consistent performances throughout last season, despite Wolves’ overall struggles, have attracted West Ham’s attention.

Incoming West Ham manager Julen Lopetegui is a big admirer of Kilman from their time together at Wolves. Lopetegui sees Kilman as a valuable addition to solidify West Ham’s defence. While West Ham aims to sign multiple defenders, Kilman could be their marquee signing for the summer window.

However, acquiring Kilman won’t be straightforward. Despite having four years remaining on his contract, a move away from Wolves can’t be ruled out, especially with West Ham’s strong interest. According to Molineux Mix , Wolves’ financial situation might force them to consider selling their captain. The potential price tag for Kilman is estimated to be around £40 million.

West Ham’s determination to improve their defence will be tested by the high price tag demanded by Wolves. Whether they are willing to spend £40 million on Kilman remains to be seen, but his leadership qualities, experience, and Lopetegui’s existing relationship with him make him a very attractive target for the Hammers.

    We need a premier league quality defender. 35m would be realistic. Then add greaves to mavropanis, casey and zouma .let augerd ho fir 25m plus

      you wanna keep Zouma? i’d rather JLo convince Aguerd to stay and play the style that he’ll adopt. i still remember how good he was at the last WC. can’t see it happening though. still, get rid of the cat kicker. he’s a liability now

  • Terry Weeks says:

    Zouma has to go. He’s an embarrassment to the shirt,. Can’t run can’t pass and never talks and he’s the captain

  • Bernard Palmer says:

    Yes it’s time for Zouma to go but I totally disagree he’s a embarrassment it’s obvious he’s got terrible problems with he’s knees but came out and played when he was asked to and was better than our other defenders and regarding being captain blame Moyes no him.

  • Mark Doody says:

    The whole back line needs changing if zouma was our best (which may be true ) that sums it up

  • Kevlar says:

    Just pay the £40m we need a new captain and leader to replace rice!!! It will give us stability and a solid base to build from. COYI
