And SunSport understands the announcement is due to take place early next week with personal terms close to being agreed.

It will be the second signing of the summer for David Moyes’ side having also captured Rennes central defender Nayef Aguerd for £30m.

Areola, 29, had been linked to other Premier League sides after his impressive campaign at the London Stadium, with Newcastle previously interested.

However, West Ham have had a clear run at confirming the deal after the Toon signed Burnley’s Nick Pope.

Areola made 18 appearances last season, 11 of them coming in the Europa League as West Ham reached the semi-finals.

But Areola is now expected to be challenging for the No.1 spot in the Prem with Polish veteran Lukasz Fabianski.

West Ham remain active in the transfer window, and are still looking for a striker to compete with Michail Antonio.

Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis has been linked, but Chelsea’s Armando Broja is their top target.


The 20-year-old scored six goals on loan at Southampton last year, and West Ham are preparing a £30m bid for the Albanian.

However, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is keen to see Broja in pre-season training before making a decision on his future.
