According to Witness Sport Through a variety of European outlets, Silkeborg IF ace Frederik Alves is finally about to secure a long-awaited transfer to West Ham.
Danish newspaper Midtjyllands Avis Now they report that the 21-year-old has said goodbye to his teammates, since the center-back is not part of the call for today’s clash against Skive.
Midtjyllands Avis also adds that Alves, who was born and raised in Denmark but is of Brazilian descent, will soon be traveling to the UK.
SportWitness reported in an important way through Additional bladet Earlier this month, West Ham will avoid missing out on the ace being ineligible via new Brexit transfer rules by agreeing to the deal by Jan.31.
Finally SportWitness reported through Danish BT outlet that the deal will be worth between 10 and 12 million crowns, which is equivalent to around £ 1.2 to £ 1.45 million at the current exchange rate.
Alves has made eight appearances this season, helping his team to six victories, two of which were accompanied by a clean sheet.
However, the 6-square-foot defender has not appeared since Nov. 1, and it is still unclear if he has recovered from injury.
Alves is a current Denmark international in the Under-21 category, and has won five internationals to date.
Alves will drive through the ranks of David Moyes’ center-backs, which currently consist of four natural options in Angelo Ogbonna, Issa Diop, Fabian Balbuena and Watford loan officer Craig Dawson.
If the aforementioned fee of between £ 1.2 million and £ 1.45 million is accurate, Alves is a low-cost option that could have a huge advantage for the Hammers.
