West Ham United have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Norway international Havard Nordtveit this summer, according to The West Ham Way.
The Premier League side, who visit Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon to take on Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, have been linked with a move for the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder ahead of the conclusion of the current 2015-16 campaign.
The 25-year-old, who has 26 international caps for his country, has scored four goals and provided one assist in 31 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga outfit so far this season.
Nordtveit; who was on the books of English top-flight rivals Arsenal between 2007 and 2010, despite never making a first-team appearance for the Gunners following loan spells at Salamanca, Lillestrom and FC Nuremburg, was also attracting the likes of his former club, Southampton and Atletico Madrid.
The Norwegian defensive midfielder has found the back of the net 12 times in 179 games for Borussia Monchengladbach since leaving Arsenal back in December 2010 for a reported fee of £800,000.
The report suggests that West Ham have struck a pre-contract agreement with Nordtveit.
