West Ham have agreed a deal in principle with Ajax for Edson Alvarez, person terms have been verbally agreed too.
Over the next few days, we, people will jump the gun and says he has signed but until he signs his contract, and we transfer the money to Ajax he will not be a Hammer!
Dutch media claim the 25-year-old arrived back from holiday in Mexico this morning at Schiphol airport near Amsterdam to be greeted by his agent Nathan van Kooperen who told him about a deal with West Ham had been reached. The package is reported to be worth up to €40m or £34.5m to Ajax but that most likely includes add-ons.
According to Mike Verweij writing for De Telegraaf he will be flying to London this evening to undertake a medical.
Assuming a two-part medical were probably looking at mid-week to conclude that element following the inevitable haggling of agent fee so I would imagine this will run for a few more days yet.
