West Ham transfer news

In this article we will bring you all of today’s West Ham transfer news. Make sure to check back to the site for more daily transfer updates throughout the summer.

Antonin Barak linked

First up comes yet another Czech star being linked with West Ham.

David Moyes’ side have benefited greatly from the arrivals of Czech Republic international Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.

They have also seen themselves linked with Alex Kral, a Czech Republic star and former teammate of Soucek and Coufal.

And now, according to reports stemming from Italian outlet Larena, West Ham are now ‘hot on the heels’ of Antonin Barak, who also hails from the Czech Republic.

Barak is a fairy attack-minded central midfielder who currently plies his trade in Italy with Hellas Verona, where he scored seven and assisted four for in 36 outings during 2020/21.

Barak is also believed to be attracting interest from Eintracht Frankfurt. However, West Ham are said to be offering more than the Germans, with a fee of around 10.2 million pounds believed to be on the table.

Hammers keen on Botman

Next up, West Ham have been credited with an interest in 21-year-old central defender, Sven Botman.

Botman featured 47 times for Lille last year in their historic Ligue 1-winning campaign and given his age, potential and quality, it is quite surprising that he hasn,t already been snapped up by a top side this summer.

According to Sky, Botman has interest from Atalanta who are looking to replace Cristian Romero, who himself has interest from Tottenham.

And whilst Botman is said to be keen to speak to the Serie A club, it is added that he is also open to moving to the Premier League and a number of English clubs have tracked him during his breakthrough season.

Amongst these are West Ham, who are said to be the most keen on his signing, followed by Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

Zouma eyed

Finally, West Ham are, according to various reports, are in talks with Chelsea over the possibility of signing Kurt Zouma.

The Frenchman fell down the pecking order somewhat following Thomas Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge and now has just two years left on his current contract, perhaps making this summer a good time to sell him.

A player-plus-cash deal involving Zouma for Sevilla’s Jules Kounde has also been touted recently. However, it is believed Zouma is settled in London and would welcome a move to West Ham.
