West Ham insider ExWHUemployee has claimed that Sebastien Haller is a target for Manuel Pellegrini this summer.

The Hammers are quite obviously desperate to sign an established striker this summer.

Marko Arnautovic has sealed his £23 million exit to China. And if West Ham are to compete for a top seven place next season, they need to sign at least two new forwards.

Negotiations for Maxi Gomez continue to rumble on, but what other options are out there for the east London outfit?

Eintracht Frankfurt hitman Sebastien Haller is one potential signing, according to West Ham insider ExWHUemployee.


The 25-year-old was in fine form in Germany last season. He racked up 20 goals and 12 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions for Eintracht.

At 6ft 3in tall, the Frenchman seems to be built perfectly for the robust nature of the Premier League. And he could be a real asset for the Hammers.

Haller could be available for around £40 million this summer, according to the Northern Echo, and in today’s day and age, that represents decent value for money for West Ham.

And it could actually be argued that the 25-year-old would be just as good an addition for the Hammers as Gomez would be.
