Three reasons West Ham should hijack Leicester’s bid to sign Kvirkvelia
According to reports in The Sun, Leicester City are ready to battle Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion for the signing of Lokomotiv Moscow centre-back Solomon Kvirkvelia during the January transfer window.
The Sun says that the duo are keen on the 25-year-old after he has enjoyed an outstanding campaign for his team, who are currently eight points clear of Zenit Saint Petersburg at the top of the Russian Premier League with 10 matches of the season left.
The report adds that despite the fact the 6ft 4in defender only joined Lokomotiv on a permanent deal following a successful loan spell from Rubin Kazan earlier this year, he is keen on a move to the English top flight.
Leicester are keen while West Brom could also move for the Georgia international if they sell captain Jonny Evans next month.
Meanwhile, West Ham United will be hoping they have turned a corner after seven points from the last nine available lifted them out of the Premier League relegation zone, but David Moyes will still want to strengthen certain areas of his squad during the upcoming window, and bringing Kvirkvelia to the London Stadium could prove to be a shrewd move.
