West Ham looks at Kurt Zouma

West Ham are desperate to strike a deal with Chelsea for French defender Kurt Zouma. Zouma, with the 26-year-old thought, would rather stay in London.

The Chelsea man was supposed to be picked up under a swap deal for Seville’s Jules Kounde but has reportedly expressed his desire to stay in London.

This has alarmed West Ham, which are reportedly interested in bringing the Champions League winners to the London stadium to bolster their side after qualifying for the Europa League last season.

Alternative lined up

Closing a deal can prove difficult, however, as Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh reports that the deal will be difficult “due to fees and wages,” which could lead Zouma to seek an alternative candidate.

As a result, West Ham is said to have set up Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic as an alternative should a deal prove impossible for Zouma. The Serbian center-back would offer a much easier deal as the Italian side are keen to charge a transfer for the 23-year-old who is out of contract in 12 months.

While the decision can ultimately be taken out of West Ham’s hands if Chelsea refuses to negotiate for Zouma, Milenkovic represents a high quality alternative.
