Ajax midfielder Edson Álvarez is on his way to London on a private plane from Amsterdam to undergo a two-part medical with West Ham.
The photo was posted by Fabrizio Romano who said “Edson Álvarez, on his way to London — ready to undergo medical tests as new West Ham player— ready to undergo medical tests as new West Ham player #WHUFC Álvarez will become most expensive Mexican player ever. Here, Edson flying with agents Nathan and Fulco van Kooperen — and West Ham director Tim Steidten.”
Technical director Tim Steidten can be seen in the background making it absolutely clear whose signing this one is in case we were in any doubt.
West Ham have agreed to pay Ajax £32m transfer fee and £3m in add-ons for the Mexican player.
He has provisionally agreed personal terms on a five-year contract at £100,000 per week and is expected to be unveiled later this week barring any last-minute disasters.
