According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, West Ham are set to battle it out with Wolves to sign AC Milan winger Suso in January.

The Hammers unquestionably need more quality in the attacking department. They have looked utterly toothless in the final third over the past two months.

And their poor run has seen them drop down to 16th place in the Premier League table.

West Ham fans need some good news. And according to Calcio Mercato, that could be just around the corner.

The Italian publication claims that the east London outfit want to sign Spanish winger Suso, although they will face competition from Premier League rivals Wolves.

Calcio Mercato claims that Milan would consider selling the 25-year-old for around €50 million (£43 million).

Suso spent time in England with Liverpool from 2012-2015. He struggled to establish himself at Anfield, but he has grown during his time with Milan, and has matured into an excellent footballer.

 

The five-capped Spain international can play anywhere along the front-line, and he would provide West Ham with an entirely different option in the final third.

Whether the Hammers board will be prepared to pay in excess of £40 million for a player who struggled to adapt to the pace of Premier League football with Liverpool, however, is another matter entirely.

And even if they do sanction a move for Suso, West Ham will reportedly face competition from Wolves. So the east London outfit have their work cut-out if they are to bring the talented Spaniard to the London Stadium in January.
