West Ham pushing to sign Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma

West Ham are pushing to sign Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma before the weekend.

The Sun says the Hammers are closing in on £25million Zouma – and hope to have him signed to be available to face Crystal Palace this weekend.

The Hammers have reached an agreement with Chelsea over the fee for the 26-year-old France centre-back and are now in the final stages of settling personal terms.

Zouma has been made available by the European champions as they look to seal the capture of his compatriot Jules Kounde from Sevilla.

And the early Premier League leaders are now on the brink of finalising a five-year deal for the centre-back which could make him the highest-paid player at the London Stadium.

Boss David Moyes has been desperate to bring in a top class defender to boost the club's attempts to repeat a top-six finish this season while also challenging in the Europa League.
