Report: West Ham enter race for centre-back linked with Spurs and Liverpool

According to a report in Bild, West Ham United have now entered the race for Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah, who is also thought to be on Tottenham’s radar.

Tah has been a fantastic servant for Leverkusen since first joining the club back in 2015, with the centre-back having made almost 300 appearances for the club so far.

90 min asserted back in February that the 27-year-old’s time at the Bundesliga club could come to an end this summer as he wishes to move to the Premier League.

The report named Spurs as one of the clubs interested in Tah, revealing that the North London club spoke to representatives from Leverkusen about the player.

The outlet added that Liverpool and Newcastle United had also reached out to the centre-back’s representatives to discuss a potential transfer.

Bild have now also confirmed that Tah wants to move to England this summer and explain that he has appointed Pina Zahavi as his consultant for a few months to help orchestrate a transfer.

The publication adds that the Hammers are now ready to make a move for the Leverkusen star, with a switch to the London stadium said to be ‘a very concrete prospect’ for the centre-back.

Spurs Web Opinion

Reinforcements in central defence would be one of Tottenham’s priorities when the summer transfer window opens.

However, the North London club are unlikely to have made any final decisions on who to pursue, given that they are currently without a head coach or a director of football.
