West Ham’s £40m Bid for Max Kilman Accepted by Wolves

04/07/24 13:05

West Ham United have successfully had a revised offer of approximately £40 million for defender Max Kilman accepted by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Hammers initially tabled a £25 million bid last month, which was swiftly turned down as it did not meet Wolves' valuation of their captain.

However, West Ham increased their offer by £15 million, reaching an agreement with Wolves for the transfer of the 27-year-old centre-back.

Julen Lopetegui, the new manager at West Ham, is set to be reunited with Kilman, a player he previously managed during his tenure at Wolves.

Having taken over from Europa Conference League-winning boss David Moyes, the Spanish manager has been quick to make his mark on the squad.

The Hammers have already secured Brazilian youngster Luis Guilherme in a £25 million move from Palmeiras, adding attacking prowess to their lineup.

Additionally, goalkeeper Wes Foderingham has joined on a two-year deal, bolstering the squad’s defensive options.

Lopetegui, alongside technical director Tim Steidten, is actively pursuing further signings as the team prepares for their Premier League opener against Aston Villa on August 17.
