A few days ago Chelsea, West Ham United, and Kurt Zouma reached a combined agreement for the French central defender’s transfer to the West Ham team.
The deal is a five year-contract worth €30m including bonuses. Zouma has now agreed on personal terms with WHUFC. Reportedly the medical of the player is being done as per TF1.
The possible impact of this heavy addition to the West Ham United team
West Ham was already the most deadly and capable team in the Premier League from set-pieces last season. Hammers showing their mastery scored 16 goals on their way to the sixth position, no other premier league team could match such class.
It is being widely discussed that the addition of Zouma would make facing the hammers even more challenging for opponents as the French defender hit a brilliant five goals in just 22 appearances in the Premier League last term.
“Zouma scored five goals last season, which was one of his most prolific in terms of appearances until Thomas Tuchel took over as head coach from Frank Lampard,” reports Sky Sports.

The talented French football player would also add to West Ham’s league-leading counter-attack play. Lazoumance would clearly be a great addition to an already amazing team.
The Hammers have proven to be the best counter-attacking side so far this season in the Premier League and were second last season to Leeds.
The 26-year old is well known for his ability to launch counterattacks from the defense. The power and speed with which he does so are commendable. It is yet to be seen if the welcoming team would be able to cash this gem or not. Nonetheless, the hopes are quite high for the player.
West Ham’s great win and Antonio’s record-breaking performance
West Ham legend Paolo Di Canio has congratulated Antonio on breaking his Premier League goal-scoring record for West Ham United and revealed that he once tried to sign the talented ace.
Antonio played magnificently during West Ham’s match in Leicester City on Monday night. They had a victory by 4-1. Antonio’s number of goals for the Hammers has reached a total of 49 since coming back in 2015 from Nottingham Forest.
This great total helped him break the record of Di Canio, who scored 47 times in the top flight for the West Ham United team during a five-year-long spell. The iconic Italian striker paid tribute to Antonio’s record-breaking performance.
