West Ham are reportedly set to conclude a deal for Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Sebastien Haller.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers expect to wrap up the £36million signing for him in the coming days.
It is understood that talks have progressed “rapidly” with the centre-forward and he is ready to sign a four-year deal ahead of his first switch to the Premier League.
The report details that West Ham’s search for a Marko Arnautovic replacement is now set to end.
Haller dazzled last season for Bundesliga outfit Frankfurt and it looks like he’s earned himself a big-money move to England.
The French striker made 41 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring 20 goals and supplying 12 assists in return.
West Ham are just a prolific centre-forward away from enjoying a great season next year and it looks like they could be about to bring one in.
Haller is a powerhouse striker that can bully defenders with his strength and looks made for the Premier League.
The 25-year-old should be entering the peak years of his career and he showed last season that he can score all types of goals as a target man.
His proposed £36million valuation will bring expectation on him and is perhaps a little risky, but he looks worth the gamble and should thrive off West Ham’s creative players.
