West Ham transfer news: Sebastien Haller closing in on £36m move from Eintracht Frankfurt after Maxi Gomez snub

West Ham United are closing in on the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastien Haller, according to reports.

The Hammers have endured a terrible run of bad luck in recent years in their pursuit of a striker, with several reported targets moving elsewhere.

Most recently, Hammers fans were getting seriously excited at the prospect of seeing Maxi Gomez line up in the famous Claret and Blue strip.

But Celta Vigo instead chose to deal with fellow LaLiga side Valencia instead, with Gomez set to move to the Mestella.

However, it appears as though their hunt for a striker could be nearing an end.

According to L’Equipe, a €40million (£36m) deal for Haller has reached an advanced stage.

Frankfurt have even begun their search for a new number nine, with Haller set to join Luka Jovic in leaving the German side.

The striker, who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season, initially wanted a move to Champions League side.

But the report claims he has changed his mind and is now keen on a move to the London Stadium.
