Breakthrough: Fabrizio Romano says West Ham have reached agreement to sign fast new “monster

A new development about Konstantinos Mavropanos suggests that David Moyes may finally improve the backline at West Ham United after missing out on Harry Maguire.

Only James Ward-Prowse and Edson Alvarez have been signed by the Hammers as reinforcements thus far. Now, though, it appears that they have acquired another.

What has changed since Konstantinos Mavropanos was a West Ham player?


According to Fabrizio Romano, VfB Stuttgart’s Mavropanos will have a medical because the London club is looking to add a center-back this summer.

According to reports, a deal of €20 million has been reached, plus € 5 million in add-ons, with 10% of the sum going to Mavropanos’ old team and West Ham’s rivals, Arsenal.

After receiving a negative response from Maguire of Manchester United, the Hammers resorted to the former Gunner. The England international’s choice, despite having a contract with the Red Devils, is what, according to reports, caused the transfer to fall through.

However, as West Ham attempts to avoid the upheaval of a relegation battle this season and enjoy the pleasures of mid-table, at the very least, Moyes appears to have finally gotten his defender.

On the opening day of the season, of course, they secured a point against Bournemouth, in what they may see as the foundation to build from in the coming weeks.

Should West Ham sign Konstantinos Mavropanos?

It’s fair to say that West Ham needed defensive reinforcements this summer after allowing 55 goals last season, which was the ninth-worst record in the league. And Mavropanos might end up being the best option.

The Bundesliga’s fastest defender may have had trouble making an impact when playing for Arsenal, but ever since moving to Stuttgart from London, he has shown why the Gunners wanted to sign him in the first place. Pellegrino Matarazzo, a former manager of Stuttgart, said the following about him on the official Bundesliga website:
