West Ham are now on the verge of signing left-back Pervis Estupinan from Villarreal, according to a report by Calcio News 24.

Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to bring on a center-back and a striker before the transfer window strikes later this month.

However, it has been alleged that the Scot is also looking for a new left-back (ExWHU staff).

And it seems like Moyes has a left back on the line-up.

West Ham is about to be signed by Pervis Estupinan

The 23-year-old Ecuadorian international is about to move to the Hammers, according to a report by Calcio News 24.

We allegedly beat Napoli to his signature.

In 25 LaLiga games for Villarreal last season, Estupinan averaged 1.5 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 0.5 clearances per game.

The South American is a strong, tenacious full-back. He also has a lot of speed.

Estupinan appears to have been specially developed for Premier League football.

The La Liga team signed him for £ 15m from Watford (Sky Sports) last summer.

However, it remains to be seen how much West Ham will have to pay for the Ecuadorian defender. It would be a useful addition, but we shouldn’t be spending so much money on a left-back until we honestly have brought in a center-back and a striker.
