West Ham United are lining up a double deal that will get the fans buzzing with excitement.
David Moyes has experienced a busy summer transfer window so far, bringing in three new signings to West Ham.
Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse and Konstantinos Mavropanos have all joined the Hammers, and it seems as though there could still be a couple more new arrivals on the way.
Youssef En-Nesyri and Mohammed Kudus are both being heavily linked with a move to the London Stadium.
West Ham are believed to be closing in on the Morocco international, whilst the Ghanian is apparently keen on a move to join the Hammers.
And it seems as though the East London outfit could sign both players…
The Telegraph claim that the Hammers are keen to sign BOTH players, rather than just one or the other.
What an unbelievably exciting double deal that would be for West Ham.
En-Nesyri and Kudus would take us to a whole new level entirely as an attacking team.
The 26-year-old striker is perfectly suited to David Moyes’s system at the London Stadium what with his tireless running, aerial ability and physicality.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Ajax star would add real pace, power and explosiveness that we’re desperately lacking right now.
West Ham completing a double deal for En-Nesyri and Kudus this summer would be a major statement from the club.
Arsenal get transfer boost from Mavropanos deal – and more could be on the way
Arsenal are set for a welcome transfer windfall courtesy of former players Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos.
The Gunners are expected to receive around £4million from deals for the pair, providing a financial boost to the club as the transfer window draws to a close. Greek defender Mavropanos has secured a return to the Premier League with West Ham.
The Hammers announced the arrival of Mavropanos on Tuesday after agreeing a £19m deal with German club Stuttgart as they aim to improve David Moyes’ options in defence. Meanwhile, French midfielder Guendouzi is in talks with Lazio.
Although discussions are still in the early stages, Guendouzi’s representatives have already approved a transfer to the Stadio Olimpico, reports the Mirror. Marseille, Guendouzi’s current club, are said to be asking around £12.7m for the ex-Gunners flop.
Aston Villa had previously shown interest in Guendouzi, with former Arsenal boss Unai Emery keen on a reunion. But Villa’s bid for the midfielder in January failed to come to fruition.
Should Guendouzi join Mavropanos in joining a new club before the window closes, Arsenal stand to benefit financially.
A clause in the original deal that took Mavropanos, 25, to Stuttgart means Arsenal have received around £2m from his transfer. Guendouzi’s sale to Marseille for approximately £9m included a similar clause which could net the Gunners another £2m.
The Premire League runners-up have already spent over £200m this summer on new signings, including Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber. Timber has already suffered a serious knee injury following his move from Ajax and is expected to miss a significant portion of the season.
Timber’s setback may prompt manager Mikel Arteta to explore the market for defensive reinforcements. Arteta acknowledged the challenge posed by the injury, saying: “We have to assess now what the options are, what the best way is to get the best out of the players we have.
“I cannot control anything that is not here. And we are always open and we have to be open and react if something happens, not only with an injury but with the market as well – and that’s what we are doing.”
