West Ham could sign eternal Chelsea loanee Tiemoue for just £15.4 million this summer according to a report from Calcio Napoli 24.

boss David Moyes will be on the lookout for central midfielders having relied heavily upon Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek this term, with recent speculation in France suggesting is the chosen target.

The 26-year-old Frenchman signed for Chelsea from back in 2017 for £36m (Transfermarkt), but has since been sent out on loan to AC Milan, back to and now with Napoli.

In four years with the Blues, has made just 43 appearances for the club, scoring three times and assisting on three others.

This term has been another successful spell away from West London for the once-capped France ace, making 35 outings in all competitions.


Signing would be a huge coup for the this summer, especially at the mooted figure.

Holding a market value at £22.5m (Transfermarkt), despite his Chelsea struggles the French enforcer has enjoyed impressive spells away with elite clubs, proof the qualities that earned the big money move are still there.
