West Ham fans are getting excited about their summer transfer business, as reports claim they have offered around £20m for Alfie Mawson.
West Ham have made a bid of around £20m for Swansea City’s Mawson, as reported by popular insider ExWHUEmployee, and the player is “very keen” on making the move.
The towering defender missed out on the slight possibility of being picked for the World Cup when he had surgery on his knee, but would be an excellent signing for the Hammers.
Fans were delighted yesterday when Sky Sports claimed they were making progress on a deal for French wonderkid Issa Diop, who would make one hell of an imposing partnership alongside Mawson.

The 24 year-old Mawson was the one silver lining in Swansea’s miserable relegation season, winning over three aerial duels per game and averaging nearly six clearances per game.
The colossal defender is very technically gifted as well, and would help Manuel Pellegrini get the team moving the ball out calmly from the back.
Fans are getting excited over their potential new partnership, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Young, quick, strong, English, solid defender, great long passer out of the back, Scores the odd goal from set pieces, committed, rarely injured, will walk through a wall for his team, about to break into the England set-up…
That said, Hegazi is a steal at £3m.

Felipe Anderson, Fabianski, Mawson, Diop, Wilshere and Mario Balotelli would be the dream for me. #WHUFC

I’d be very happy with Mawson and Diop. Everton sniffing around Diop though apparently.
