HAM HONE IN ON FAZ
WEST HAM are closing in on Sevilla’s Argentine giant Federico Fazio in a £5million deal.
The 25-year-old centreback, who can also play a holding midfield role, is 6ft 5ins tall, making him the ideal Sam Allardyce signing.
The ex-Blackburn boss is keen to bolster the defence with Fazio to be his rock at the centre.
The player travelled to London for a medical after a fee was agreed.
West Ham are also keen on Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.
They have offered £6m, but the Midlands side are holding out for £10m.
