Kehrer is close to joining West Ham as they have agreed a fee with the French champions for him, to the tune of €12m plus add-ons.
West Ham were not the only team interested in the centre-back though as Spanish side Sevilla, who are involved in this season’s Champions League, were also keen on him.
Though he is now West Ham-bound, Kehrer was top of Monchi’s list for their centre-back recruitment, according to Spanish outlet Relevo.
Sevilla though, have gone ahead and landed another centre-back from league champions, Tanguy Nianzou from Bayern Munich.
The La Liga club have lost both Jules Kounde and Diego Carlos this summer and thus wanted to add to their centre-back area.
Kehrer comes to West Ham having won a host of trophies with Paris Saint-Germain and last season making 27 Ligue 1 appearances.
