Boleyn Insider

In our exciting new feature on, the Boleyn Insider blog will bring you exclusive insight into the behind-the-scenes goings on at the Boleyn Ground.

The Boleyn Insider will try to offer a digest on the latest gossip from around the Club and the major transfer speculation surrounding the first-team. In today's blog, he reveals the very latest on a potential major new signing.

All the speculation surrounding the Club continues to focus on an eight-figure signing arriving at the Boleyn Ground.

Reports have indicated that the player has now arrived in England ahead of his move to the east London club.

My understanding is that he is having a medical and the Club remain hopeful that a deal will be finalised before the weekend.

I believe the signing will be a major coup for the Club as the player is rated one of the hottest properties in Europe and could be one of the major stars in the Premier League next season.

There have also been reports linking West Ham with Monaco defender Aymen Abdennour.

My sources have told me that they are looking at a number of other top class player but they cannot say anymore at this stage as it will make other Clubs aware of our targets.
