According to the Daily Mail, West Ham United are in talks for two more signings as they pursue Le Havre defender Harold Moukoudi and Juventus midfielder Stefan Sturaro.

The Hammers tied up their eighth signing of the summer on Thursday, as Portuguese winger Xande Silva arrived from Vitoria Guimaraes to join Manuel Pellegrini's influx.

Silva joins Lukasz Fabianski, Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Fabian Balbuena, Jack Wilshere, Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko at the London Stadium, and West Ham aren't done yet.

 

The Daily Mail report that West Ham are currently in talks for two signings, with Le Havre defender Harold Moukoudi and Juventus midfielder Stefan Sturaro on their wish list.

It's claimed that talks are underway for Moukoudi, though the French centre back will cost around £10million, with sales possibly needing to be made before he can be signed.

Moukoudi, 20, has impressed in France's second tier, become one of French football's most promising centre backs – much like Diop – and the 6ft 3in defender could now head to England.

Meanwhile, Juventus midfielder Sturaro is another target, with talks allegedly being held about a deal to see the Italian join West Ham on loan for the new season.

The 25-year-old has won four league titles with Juve but has been playing a bit-part role, and the arrival of Emre Can means that he is likely to move on, with West Ham looking to strike a deal.
