West Ham have NOT agreed a deal to bring Denis Zakaria from Juventus for £17m 6foot2 have been told by club insiders.
Reports yesterday led by the Daily Mirror claimed the Hammers had reached an agreement to bring Juventus defensive midfielder Denis Zakaria back to the Premier League.
The Switzerland international only arrived at Juventus from Borussia Monchengladbach back in January 2022, but in that same summer, was sent out on a season-long loan to Chelsea to try and get some regular game time under his belt, though that didn’t happen, having been handed just five top-flight starts at Stamford Bridge.
Whether West Ham will continue to pursue Zakaria as a target is unknown at this time but Juventus people are said to be in London talking to Chelsea over Romelu Lukaku and a possible swap deal with Dusan Vlahovic.
West Ham have a number of defensive midfield targets in play.
