Turkish journalist says 6’4 central defender is ‘certain’ to join West Ham
Central defender Issa Diop is barely out of the door at West Ham, but it appears they already have his replacement lined up. West Ham have suffered a number of injuries in central defence and Kurt Zouma is currently the only natural option there, but he may shortly be joined by Attila Szalai.
The 24-year-old Hungarian is a sizable presence at the back, currently playing his football in Turkey with Fenerbahce. After two seasons in Istanbul, Szalai has caught the eye of West Ham and could well be a cheap and cheerful solution for David Moyes. West Ham Zone reference a report from ExWHU Employee, which claims that Szalai would be allowed to leave for just £10m.
Turkish journalist Volkan Agir seems to think the matter is closed, tweeting out that it was a done deal.
“Fenerbahce’s transfer of Szalai to West Ham is certain…”, commented Asgir on Wednesday.
Now a regular with the Hungarian national side, Szalai was part of the team that thumped England 4-0 in the Nations League this summer. Given how comfortably Hungary handled a team made up of the Premier League’s finest forwards, it suggests Szalai can cope with the demands.
