West Ham are close to completing a deal to sign Pablo Zabaleta on a free transfer, according to Sky sources.
The Argentina defender will leave Manchester City when his contract expires at the end of June and is in final negotiations over a switch to the Hammers.
Sky Sports News HQ revealed in April that West Ham were interested in bringing Zabaleta to London Stadium.
If the deal goes through, the 32-year-old will become Slaven Bilic’s first major signing of the summer and compete with Sam Byram for the right-back berth at West Ham.
Bilic has been looking to add to his options at right-back with Alvaro Arbeloa set to depart the club in the summer following the conclusion of his one-year deal.
Zabaleta joined City from Espanyol in 2008 and went on to make over 300 appearances for the club, winning the Premier League on two occasions.
