Sealed deal West Ham United has successfully signed  Bayer Leverkusen defender …..

West Ham United want to sign Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah this summer, but face competition from clubs in Serie A according to Sky Sports.

Tah has become a key member of Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen side this season, but has a £15.5m release clause in his contract that is active for the summer transfer window.

That has attracted West Ham and several clubs in Italy to his situation according to Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg (6 June), who claims Alonso is pushing to keep Tah in Germany.

News Tah: Alonso is pushing for him as he wants to keep him after top matches in the last months,” he wrote.

“But release clause of €18m (£15.5m) in summer. Many clubs from [England] and [Italy] are in. West Ham one of the clubs.”

West Ham definitely need to sign a central defender this summer, because the club are short on options for the position.

After allowing Craig Dawson to join Wolves in January Moyes was left with just Kurt Zouma, Nayef Aguerd and Angelo Ogbonna as senior central defenders, while Thilo Kehrer and Aaron Cresswell are also capable of playing there too.

But another natural defender would allow those players to return to playing at full-back and keep the squad in a positive balance, with the future of Ben Johnson hanging in the balance.

Tah is a talented defender with plenty of international experience for the German national team, and at just £15.5m it would represent quite a bargain for a player as good as him.

It would be a great deal, but the club would likely have to move quickly and make some assurances to convince him to leave regular football in Germany to compete for his place here.


Report: West Ham now interested in signing £40m Chelsea player, Moyes getting a bigger say on transfers


West Ham are interested in signing Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, according to reports.


FootballTransfers claims that West Ham manager David Moyes is in line to be given a bigger say on the club’s transfer activity this summer.


It is explained that the Hammers boss is looking at three midfielders to replace Declan Rice, who’s linked with a move away from the London Stadium in the upcoming transfer window.


The report adds that Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, Southampton’s James Ward Prowse and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay are the players eyed by Moyes.


We will be very interested to see if anybody gets near to meeting Chelsea’s asking price.


If you’re judging Gallagher solely on this season, his £40million valuation seems very unrealistic. The 23-year-old midfielder really didn’t set the world alight during his first year in the senior squad at Stamford Bridge.


However, the England international previously lit up the Premier League during a season-long loan at Crystal Palace in the 2021/21 campaign.


Gallagher’s return of three goals in 45 games this season was far too low for somebody with his quality.


In addition, the Blues academy graduate struggled to fit one position under the numerous managers at the Bridge.


We could definitely picture Gallagher fitting into the West Ham line-up and doing well, but what does Mauricio Pochettino think of the matter?



After £38m bid was rejected in 2022, Chelsea now set to try again for defender compared to Gvardiol


What’s the story?

Well – according to L’Equipe – the Blues made a £38m bid for the Lyon No.4 in the summer of 2022.


However, the offer was rejected, and Lukeba ended up staying with the French giants.


The 20-year-old has continued to develop well at Lyon, making 34 appearances in Ligue 1 throughout the 2022/23 campaign, with his superb displays keeping Chelsea interested.


But Football Club believe the Blues remain attentive to Lukeba’s situation, and are ready to try again as he currently hesitates over signing a new contract.


The French news outlet state that Chelsea currently lead the race to sign the France Under-21 international.


But Football Club add that Lyon are hoping to receive at least €50m (£43m) for Lukeba, but they could even demand more if Rayan Cherki is sold first, as the Ligue 1 side feel they have a very rare commodity on their hands in the talented centre-back.


Who is Chelsea target Castello Lukeba?

The Lyon-born defender is not exactly a household name, yet, so you may not know too much about him.
