Elye Wahi chooses West Ham over Chelsea

Foot Mercato are reporting that Elye Wahi (20) has chosen to move to West Ham United over Premier League rivals Chelsea.

It was reported on Tuesday that the France U21 international was having doubts over a move to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have so far shown the greatest interest in Wahi, but according to RMC Sporthe was beginning to question his significance within the project. Throughout the Blues’ pursuit of the Montpellier forward, it has been suggested that he would be sent immediately out on loan, potentially to BlueCo-owned RC Strasbourg Alsace. 

However, it now seems that Wahi has chosen his next destination. West Ham are ready to table a €35m bid, according to RMC Sport, and Wahi wants the move. His current club, Montpellier, have been informed of his desire to join the Hammers. No official bid has been submitted, but talks are ongoing, according to Foot Mercato.
