West Ham United are nearing a deal that will bring Juventus striker Simone Zaza over to England.

After defeating Lazio 1-0 on the back of Sami Khedira, Juventus inched closer to finding a solution to the Simone Zaza saga.

The latest from Gianluca Di Marzio confirms that West Ham United have found a deal with the Bianconeri striker to bring him to London.

The former Sassuolo number nine has reportedly signed a contract with the Hammers, completing a move in the form of a loan with an obligation to purchase at €28m including bonuses. The only thing missing here is the official announcement, which should arrive in the coming hours.

For Juventus, Zaza was observed as the fifth striker on the depth chart behind Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Gonzalo Higuain and Marko Pjaca. Surplus to requirements, obtaining roughly 30 million euros for a player likely to receive very little action is a fantastic financial move for Giuseppe Marotta who could now reinvest into finding midfield support before summer’s end.
