West Ham close to deal for Sevilla defender Fazio

West Ham United are closing on a deal for Sevilla defender Federico Fazio.

The Sun says Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is desperate to bring another central defender, 25, and the Argentine international fits the bill.

Allardyce recently signed James Collins from Aston Villa but he still feels they need more cover at the back.

He said: “We are trying to build a squad in quality terms and strength in depth.”
