Thilo Kehrer to touch down within hours to complete multiple West Ham United medical tests - Fabrizio Romano

Paris Saint-Germain defender Thilo Kehrer will be in London within hours to complete numerous medical tests for West Ham United, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian journalist has reported that the French club want to complete the move as soon as possible with two other exits expected from Paris.

Romano shared that the deal is set to be completed with no final hitches expected at either end after a stressful summer so far for the Hammers.

Writing on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon (16 August), Romano shared the latest with the German set to complete his move within days.

“Thilo Kehrer to West Ham, deal set to be completed,” he wrote.

“German centre back will be in London in the next hours to undergo medical tests this week.

“PSG want to complete Ebimbe to Eintracht, Kehrer to West Ham and Keylor Navas to Napoli as soon as possible.”

Smart.

West Ham are being very thorough in their tests this summer, and that is always smart.

You can never predict freak injuries such as the one picked up by another new signing, Nayef Aguerd, but if something else comes up, you can plan against it.

Other clubs don’t appear to have been as through with the likes of Flynn Downes also going through numerous medical tests in different parts before his move was complete.

Kehrer will solve a real issue at the back for David Moyes, who looks as though he will have his man available for the clash with Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

If these medicals don’t drag out, we should see Kehrer announced within 24 hours possibly as he looks to save the day for West Ham United at the back.

It is all about registering the player in time in order to avoid any problems, but on this timeline, it should all work out just fine with a new-look defence coming our way.
