West Ham United make progress in their effort to secure a double signing on Thursday – ExWHUemployee

According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham are nearing a deal to sign VfB Stuttgart defender Konstantinos Mavropanos and Ajax forward Mohammed Kudus.

The Hammers source revealed on his Patreon on the 17th of August that the negotiations for both the Greek and Ghanaian internationals are “advancing” and that the club hopes to achieve an agreement on Thursday (17th).He stated that the sum for Mavropanos, 25, will be around £25 million, while the Irons are attempting to persuade Kudus, 23, to join them at the London Stadium, since other clubs have expressed interest in him.Both of the transfers that we revealed are moving forward today,” he said. “The club is hoping to reach an agreement with Stuggart for Mavropanos and to get closer to an agreement on the Mohammed Kudus transfer.”

If West Ham can complete a deal for both players over the next several days, it will be a big lift for everyone affiliated with the club.According to an ex-WHU employee, David Moyes was blown away by Tim Steidten’s advice to sign Mavropanos due to the centre-back’s physical characteristics, pace, and talent on the ball.

After joining Stuttgart from Arsenal last summer, the Greek made 34 appearances for the Bundesliga club last season, scoring three goals and providing one assist to help them maintain their top-flight status.The signing of Kudus, who has been linked with Arsenal and Chelsea, comes as the Irons prepare to lose Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta to Manchester City.
