West Ham could now sign Cadiz forward, Anthony Lozano, with the Spanish club willing to accept a bid in the region of £8.8m for their man.
Goal claims that Cadiz have reluctantly agreed to sell Lozano. The Hammers have been linked with a move for the forward this month, with reports claiming earlier in the month David Moyes was keen on a deal for Lozano.
Cadiz are said to be keen on keeping hold of their man but know that he may want to go. Premier League interest is bound to be tempting and Goal now claim the Spanish side will accept around 10m Euros for Lozano.
It remains to be seen whether West Ham will follow up their interest with a concrete move. The Hammers are set to sign Jesse Lingard from Man United, while Said Benrahma’s deal is also set to be made permanent.
Lozano has hit the net just the three times this season. He is, however, highly-rated and at 27, should be coming into his prime years.
TBR View: A cheap price, but can Lozano adapt to England quickly?
Less than £10m is a snip for a striker in today’s market but the Hammers need someone who can do the business now.
Lozano is hardly the most prolific striker going. He does, however, have experience at international level and might well fancy his chances of proving himself in the Premier League.
West Ham are bound to be busy in the coming days and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a deal done here, depending on if work-permits can be arranged due to new EU rules.
