West Ham agree deal with Argentine left-back

Published Add your comment

West Ham are in talks with Boca Juniors over the possible signing of Emanuel Insua, according to the Daily Mirror.

The left-back has already agreed personal terms with the club, but West Ham and Boca Juniors have yet to agree on a price for the player. However, the club are certain the deal will be wrapped up within the next few days.

Despite playing in defence, Insua managed to provide six assists at Boca last term, in 25 appearances.

Insua would be the second Argentine to join West Ham this summer, with a deal to bring in CA Velez’s star striker, Mauro Zarate, already agreed. The Hammers have also confirmed a £7million deal to bring in powerful defender, Cheikhou Kouyate, from Anderlecht.

West Ham have been busy so far during this transfer window – which doesn’t officially open until July 1 – and club manager, Sam Allardyce, has admitted that he is looking to add an additional five players to his squad, on top of the two that he has already agreed to sign.

West Ham were thought to be chasing £1.5million-rated Fiorentina left back, Marcos Alonso, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland, but his parent club are now thought to want to hold on to their player, forcing the Hammers to look elsewhere.

However, Nice left-back, Timothee Kolodziejczak, was also linked with a move to Upton Park, in a £3million deal. However, Allardyce has admitted that “We’ve made many bids and there are many negotiations ongoing.”

With a number of new faces set to join, Allardyce will be keen to wrap up his transfer activity early, to ensure the team have time to gel ahead of next season’s Premier League campaign.
