West Ham United reportedly have a ‘concrete’ interest in signing Jonathan Tah in the summer transfer window.
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Kurt Zouma continues to struggle with injury problems whilst Angelo Ogbonna is now 35, and hasn’t agreed a contract extension yet. On top of that, Craig Dawson was sold to Wolves in the January transfer window.
And it seems as though Tah could be the man for the job for Moyes…
West Ham eyeing Jonathan Tah swoop
BILD reckon that the Hammers are very keen to bring the 16-capped Germany international to the London Stadium this summer.
In 33 Bundesliga appearances for Leverkusen this season, Tah has averaged 1.2 interceptions and 3.5 clearances per game. He has also won an average of 1.7 aerial duels per match (Who Scored).
The German is a superb passer of the football and is very comfortable in possession. This season, he has made 49.4 passes per game on average in the Bundesliga and has recorded a hugely impressive completion rate of 89.1% (Who Scored).
Standing at 6ft 5in tall, the German is physically imposing and is incredibly dominating in the air. Bleacher Report once described him as an ‘outstanding’ defender.
He has a release clause worth €18 million (£15.4 million) inserted into his current contract with Bayer Leverkusen, according to BILD. That must be activated before the start of July though.
If David Moyes brings Jonathan Tah to West Ham in the summer transfer window, I think he’d be a great signing for us, especially for just £15.4 million.
