West Ham United could miss out to Tottenham Hotspur on the signing of Wolves ace Max Kilman this summer.
According to a report from Corriere Dello Sport (print edition July 6th, page 12), Tottenham are eyeing up a move to sign West Ham target Max Kilman in the summer transfer window.
The East London outfit want to bring the 26-year-old Wolves centre-back to the London Stadium this summer.
Kilman would be absolutely perfect for us, with David Moyes having recently sold Craig Dawson and with Hammers duo Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma prone to injuries.
However, Spurs will seemingly be a big problem…
West Ham face huge problem as Tottenham want to sign Max Kilman
Corriere Dello Sport reckon that Spurs chief Daniel Levy is negotiating with Wolves for the transfer of the 26-year-old centre-back.
Napoli allegedly want to sign him as well, so West Ham face a real battle ahead of us.
In 37 Premier League appearances this season, Max Kilman averaged one tackle, 4.5 clearances and 2.4 successful aerial duels per game (Who Scored).
During those outings, he made 56.9 passes on average per match and recorded a completion rate of 83.3% (Who Scored).
At 26, Kilman is the perfect age to come in and do a job for the Hammers, and he would be a great long-term replacement for Ogbonna.
Jose Sa once described the 26-year-old as ‘amazing’. Standing at 6ft 4in tall, he is really strong in the air, and is a terrific leader at the back for Wolves.
Max Kilman is absolutely perfectly suited to the Premier League what with his immense physicality, and I would absolutely love him to join West Ham this summer.
If Tottenham make a concrete move for him though, Moyes will have a really hard task on his hands, if he is to win the race for his signature.
