Julen Lopetegui reaches agreement to become new West Ham United manager

West Ham United have been linked with a move for 57-year-old former Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui for several months.

According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, West Ham United have now reached an agreement with Julen Lopetegui. The 57-year-old former Real Madrid manager will take over from long-serving incumbent David Moyes next season.

West Ham have also been linked with the likes of Ruben Amorim recently. Meanwhile, Lopetegui has managed in the Premier League before with Wolves, and he could prove to be the ideal acquisition for the Hammers.

West Ham needed to freshen things up at the end of the season, and the former Real Madrid manager will be expected to get them back on track. While there is no doubt that David Moyes has done a respectable job at the club so far, West Ham have struggled in the league under him, and the Hammers need someone who can help them improve.

The East London club have spent a substantial amount of money on new signings, and they will be hoping to compete in European football regularly. Moyes is clearly not able to deliver that, and it will be interesting to see if the former Real Madrid boss can get the job done. The 57-year-old has a wealth of experience, having managed top clubs in the past, and he should prove to be an exciting addition.

West Ham will look to push for European qualification

With a couple of quality additions in the summer, West Ham could really push for European qualification next season. The Hammers won the UEFA Europa Conference League last season, and they will be hoping to compete at that level regularly.

Bringing in a quality manager could prove to be a wise decision in the long term. The 57-year-old Spaniard could attract quality players to the club as well. All parties have now reached an agreement, and an official confirmation can be expected soon.

The opportunity to manage an ambitious club like West Ham will be quite exciting for the Spanish manager as well, and he will look to prove his worth in the Premier League. If he can guide West Ham back to Europe next season and help them compete for domestic trophies, it will have been a successful season for the former Real Madrid boss.
