Journalist Fabrice Hawkins reports this morning that Paris Saint-Germain defender Thilo Kehrer is expected in London today to undergo his medical ahead of his move to West Ham, with the two clubs having reached an agreement.
Reports earlier in the day had indicated that the German international had agreed personal terms with the Premier League side. He has chosen the Hammers over Sevilla, who were also interest but will now turn their attention towards signing Bayern Munich defender and former PSG man Tanguy Kouassi.
Kehrer has made 128 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions since joining for a lucrative fee four years ago from Schalke, but has been deemed surplus to requirements at the club. The move across the channel will see the 25-year-old gain some playing time ahead of the World Cup, as well as allowing West Ham to bolster their options amid a defensive crisis, with former Rennes man Nayef Aguerd picking up an injury shortly after his arrival.
