David Moyes has been told he needs to get a West Ham deal done for £17 million valued Thilo Kehrer done asap

David Moyes has been working on trying to sign players that have the ability to take the club to that next level this summer – and have done some pretty good transfer business so far

Last month saw the Hammers confirm the signing of Italian striker Gianluca Scamacca from Serie A side Sassuolo and the arrival of the £32 million purchase made it four transfers for the summer following the arrivals of Alphonse Areola, Flynn Downes and Nayef Aguerd.

However – the club have picked up a number of injuries this pre-season and Moyes knows that he needs to keep on spending that money in order to keep on improving the side

And that has led to rumours in the media that the Hammers are very much interested in trying to secure a deal for PSG star Kehrer -who may seek a way out of the French giants

Now – amid all the speculation broadcaster Kweku Afari has told David Moyes and West Ham that they should pay the £17 million it would take to sign Kehrer this summer: “He’s a ball playing centre-back and that’s what everybody is looking for at the moment,” broadcaster Kweku Afari said on Sky Sports.

“He can also operate on both sides, primarily as a right-back but also on the left side as well.

“And he is a player that West Ham need. As outlined, they’re short of options in the centre-back position.

“Craig Dawson is a somebody they relied on heavily last season but he’s getting up there in age, 32-years-old.

“So it will freshen up West Ham’s backline. Obviously, Kurt Zouma was their big acquisition last summer and (Angelo) Ogbonna suffered with injury Bringing in Kehrer will reinforce that backline and mean that they’re well positioned to push for Europe again this season.”
