Journalist gives new update on West Ham’s pursuit of Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma

Posted by

With two weeks left until the closure of the summer transfer window, Chelsea are still in the position where they need to sell a centre-back.

Kurt Zouma, whilst not necessarily surplus to requirements at the Stamford Bridge outfit, will have to find a new club in order for Thomas Tuchel to be able to fund his move for Sevilla star centre-back, Jules Kounde.

London rivals, West Ham United, were known to be interested in Zouma earlier in the window before turning their attentions to Nikola Milenkovic.

However, following the collapse of that move, the Hammers could be back in for Zouma.

The stumbling block would appear to be the £25m asking price and player’s wages.

David Moyes hasn’t given up hope of signing Kurt Zouma

According to The Guardian journalist, Jacob Steinburg, David Moyes hasn’t yet given up hope of acquiring the player.

The closer it gets to the window without Zouma having been moved on, the more chance that the Hammers may have of bringing down the price and seeing a successful conclusion to their pursuit.
