The Insider

The Insider can reveal a top international player is set to have a medical with the Club and clears up speculation surrounding Angelo Ogbonna

Speculation continues to intensify over which new players will be arriving at West Ham United during the summer.

There have been a number of top stars linked with the Club in recent weeks as Slaven Bilic looks to make his squad even stronger for the historic move into the new Stadium.

The Club have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring in new additions and it is my understanding that there could be a major addition to the squad in the near future.

I have been told that a top international player will be undergoing a medical with the Club and they hope to conclude a deal within the next 72 hours.

There has been a lot of speculation linking the Hammers with moves for Besiktas duo Gokhan Tore and Atiba Hutchinson.

My sources have told me that negotiations have taken place and although the club remain hopeful, there is still some way to go before a deal can be agreed.

I have been assured that there are many irons in the fire and the club will continue to get the best possible deals.

Reports in the media have also linked Angelo Ogbonna with a move back to Serie A as Roma lead the chase to sign him.

Ogbonna has been rewarded for his impressive form at West Ham with a call-up to the Italy squad for the Euro Finals in France.

I have been told categorically that the talented defender is not for sale and will not be going anywhere. He remains a major part of the squad for next season.
