According to a report from Italian publication Area Napoli, West Ham want to sign Napoli ace Hirving Lozano this summer.

The Hammers are also keen on Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica, according to a report from Sky Sports.
The pacy attacker could be available for just £33 million, according to Bild
And according to Gonfialarete, Napoli are now in for the Kosovo international as well.
So although West Ham might miss out to the Serie A side for Rashica’s signature, there might be better news on the horizon regarding Lozano.
If Gennaro Gattuso brings the 23-year-old Bremen ace to Naples, he will surely then allow the Mexico international to depart.
And that would obviously play right into the Hammers’ hands.
The 24-year-old could be up for grabs for around £43 million this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
And that seems like decent value considering the fact that he has a £115 million release clause inserted into his contract with Napoli (Calico Mercato).
West Ham boss David Moyes would surely love Lozano at the London Stadium.
He hasn’t enjoyed the best of seasons with Napoli, since making his £36 million move from PSV Eindhoven last summer.
The 24-year-old has racked up just three goals and two assists in 25 outings so far this season (Transfermarkt).
In 16 league games for the Serie A outfit, the Mexico international has just two goals and one assist to his name. He has averaged just 1.3 shots, 0.8 dribbles and 0.8 key passes per game during those outings (Who Scored).
He proved during his time at PSV, however, that he has what it takes to succeed at the very highest level.
Lozano racked up 40 goals and 23 assists in 79 appearances for the Eredivisie outfit (Transfermarkt).
And if West Ham do miss out on Rashica, the Mexican ace would be more than an adequate alternative.
Whether the Hammers can afford his reported £43 million asking price, however, remains to be seen.
