West Ham are hoping to sign FOUR players before the start of the Premier League season, which gets underway in just under two weeks.
The Hammers are closest to bringing in Gianluca Scamacca, a striker from Sassuolo in a deal worth £30.5million.
The club are also targeting another trio, but who are they?
West Ham are aiming to bring in four new players before their Premier League campaign gets underway, including Gianluca Scamacca.
Scamacca, 23, is on his way to London ahead of a medical that is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday 26th June).
The Italian was been scouted by PSG, Manchester United and Arsenal but David Moyes has got his man after the club grew inpatient with Chelsea as they are yet to decide whether to sell Armando Broja or not.
West Ham also have Eintracht Frankfurt’s versatile wing-back Filip Kostic on their wishlist. The 29-year-old will Fcost the Hammers around £12-£15million. Talks are progressing well and the club are hopeful they can complete a deal. The player himself still needs to be convinced as he can leave the Europa Fchampions on a free next summer and he would be departing a club that has Champions League football.
If a transfer cannot be completed then rumours suggest West Ham will bid for Burnley star Maxwel Cornet. Similarly to Kostic, Cornet can operate anywhere on the left flank and would cost roughly the same.
Another target is attacking midfielder Piotr Zielinski of Napoli after West Ham lost out on Jesse Lingard to Nottingham Forest.
Napoli are currently demanding what the East London side deem as too much for the Polish international. Figures are getting closer and there is hope a compromise could be made, according to @ExWHUemployee.
Finally, West Ham are still in pursuit of Lille defensive midfielder Amadou Onana.
The deal is currently on hold because the French side will only accept a sizeable bid with Moyes yet to give the green light to offering more money. The club could make one final offer but Lille do need to lower their price if they want to sell the 20-year-old Belgian.
