Zaza set to join West Ham, confirms Bilic


Juventus striker Simone Zaza is on the brink of signing for West Ham, manager Slaven Bilic has confirmed.

The Italy international saw a move to Wolfsburg break down earlier this month, but is now set for the Premier League after the clubs agreed a fee. 

"With the Zaza situation, it looks very likely to happen and should happen today," Bilic said on Friday at his pre-match media conference ahead of the game at Manchester City on Sunday.

"As far as I know the deal is agreed between the clubs.

"The personal terms are also agreed and he is due in London today, so we hope it will be done.

"It's very positive and is a boost. We've been trying for a long time now to get a top-quality striker and he was always mentioned."
