West Ham consider summer move for £26 million defender

According to SerieBnews, Juventus defender Federico Gati has attracted interest from Everton and West Ham as the 24-year-old has struggled for game time this season, reports the FFC.

The two Premier League clubs are reportedly monitoring his situation and could attempt to lure him away from the Italian giants, who value him at €30 million (£26m). Gati needs regular game time at this point in his career, and if Juventus cannot provide him with assurances, he may seek to move on. Everton are in need of defensive reinforcements as they have been vulnerable at the back this season, while West Ham have also struggled defensively.

Both teams are fighting to avoid relegation, and acquiring a quality defender could be crucial to their improvement next season. It remains to be seen if Everton and West Ham will make a concrete offer for the Juventus defender.

It remains to be seen which club Federico Gati will end up with, but he has the potential to be a valuable player for either Everton or West Ham. Although his reported valuation of €30 million may be steep for the Premier League clubs, the 24-year-old has the quality to justify such a fee. Juventus signed him for €9.75 million, but it’s unknown if they would be willing to lower their asking price in the future.
