West Ham United reportedly could sign Denis Zakaria after he left Chelsea to return to his parent club Juventus.
Juventus are allegedly demanding around £30 million for Zakaria (The Daily Mail).
And it seems as though the Juve star could be just the man for the job for Moyes…
Fabrizio Romano claims West Ham could sign Denis Zakaria after his Chelsea exit
It seems as though the Switzerland international could leave the Turin giants in the summer transfer window, but this time move to East London rather than West London.
Fabrizio Romano took to Twitter to provide an update on Denis Zakaria’s current situation after he left Stamford Bridge:
Zakaria is a defensive midfielder by trade but crucially as far as West Ham are concerned, he can play in the centre-back position as as well.
The Swiss international is incredibly dynamic and energetic. He is a tenacious tackler and has the kind of physicality needed to succeed in the Premier League.
If he was given a regular run of games by David Moyes at the London Stadium, I’m certain that he would prove his true worth.
“He is an incredible box-to-box [player]. He has exceptional technique and grinds kilometres. All his characteristics were appreciated from a very young age, and he made his debut at the age of 18. He has offers from England, he has the right characteristics for the Premier. He will become a devastating player. Zakaria is a champion and has characteristics more or less similar to [Napoli midfielder Diego] Demme. Quantity, but a lot of quality.”
His struggles with Chelsea were well documented, but I believe he just needs to play regular football in order for everyone to see just how good he is.
And if West Ham sign Denis Zakaria this summer, I believe he would be a very good addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.
