West Ham United and Ajax have reached an agreement for the transfer of Nicolas Tagliafico, according to reports from The Netherlands.

Votebal International claims the clubs agreed a deal to make the transfer for €12m.

They can’t say the move is done already, though, since it’s made clear that Tagliafico himself is still to reach an agreement with the Premier League side.

It’s claimed that the fullback has been wishing to leave the Dutch side ‘for some time’, and the club had already made him a promise they’d let him go ‘for a certain amount’.

Voetbal International points out that Tagliafico is currently in South America, as he joined the Argentine national team for the upcoming international games. It’s not clear if that would harm any chances of a deal, although it certainly makes it a little more complicated.

West Ham’s deal with Ajax to sign the 28-year-old is also being reported by De Telegraaf. They say although the player is in Venezuela, his agent Ricardo Sclieper is in Amsterdam sorting the deal.

It’s said the initial offer from the Hammers, which was for a four-year contract, was ‘inadequate’, so the entourage are now waiting for an ‘improved’ one. The player is said to be hoping that the transfer will be done.
