Report: West Ham agree to hand Nicolas Tagliafico four-year deal

West Ham have moved a step closer to a deal for Nicolas Tagliafico with Tuttomercatoweb reporting that the left-back has agreed to a four-year contract.

Tagliafico could potentially be a late addition to David Moyes’s squad at the London Stadium.

It was reported earlier on Monday that a £10.25 million fee had been agreed with Ajax for the 28-year-old.

That report from De Telegraaf noted that personal terms still needed to be agreed.

And it seems that they are edging closer. Tuttomercatoweb hints that further details need to be ironed out. But West Ham have agreed the length of the deal with Tagliafico.

He is set to commit until 2025 should he complete a move to the Premier League.

Seriously exciting move from West Ham if they get Tagliafico deal across the line

Tagliafico is untested in one of Europe’s biggest leagues. And he turns 29 on Tuesday, so he is hardly a young player with a lot of room to develop further.

But he has bags of Champions League experience. And he has also represented Argentina more than 30 times.

So he has played at the very highest level.

And West Ham are seemingly closing in on signing him for less than £11 million. That could prove to be an outstanding piece of business.

The Hammers could do with greater depth in that area of the field with Arthur Masuaku struggling with injury at times.

And in Tagliafico, they are signing a player who should be at his peak.

There may still be work to be done. But the Hammers have seemingly cleared another hurdle.
