Transfers: Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) and West Ham, marriage canceled


Everything seemed to indicate Tuesday that Kurt Zouma would wear the colors of West Ham this season. The Chelsea Blues and the Hammers had agreed on a transfer valued at € 25m and the French international (26) was due to undergo his medical examination on Wednesday before signing a five-year contract. This was before the two London clubs reneged on their agreement.

50 M € for Koundé?

As revealed by TF1, the negotiations ultimately failed and the transfer of the central defender will not take place. It is the structure of the offer which is in question and which put an end, a priori definitively, to the negotiations. On Wednesday, in West Ham, it was explained that the deal would not be « 95% ». This failure sounds like a serious setback for the former Stéphanois, under contract until 2023, invited to find a way out before the end of the transfer window, Tuesday evening.

At the same time, Chelsea continued in recent hours to want to recruit Jules Koundé. According to Sky Sport Italia, the Blues and Sevilla FC have come closer to an agreement on a sum estimated at € 50 million.
