West Ham United closing in on Napoli defender Pablo Armero
9:47am Friday 31st January 2014 in Sport
West Ham are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Pablo Armero from Napoli on deadline day.
Sam Allardyce has moved for the Colombian defender after Joey O’Brien suffered a dislocated shoulder in the goalless draw at Chelsea earlier this week which may rule him out for the rest of the season.
The Serie A club are said to have a deal in place for Faouzi Ghoulam, clearing the way for Armero to move to Upton Park.
The 27-year-old had looked set to join AC Milan on loan earlier this month, but the move fell through when Kevin Constant rejected a move in the opposite direction.
