West Ham United have been priced out of a move for Sevilla midfielder Joan Jordan according to club insiders Claret and Hugh.
El Gol Digital claimed a couple of days ago that the Hammers are keen to sign the 26-year-old ace this summer.
Jordan has a £51 million release clause inserted into his contract with Sevilla, however (El Gol Digital).
And Claret and Hugh now claim that West Ham will not be able to afford the Spanish ace.
That comes as no surprise of course.
It is a shame, however, because the 26-year-old Sevilla star would have been a fantastic addition for the Hammers.
West Ham being priced out of Joan Jordan swoop a big blow
The Spaniard is a top class talent.
Jordan has racked up six assists and one goal in 25 La Liga games for Sevilla this season (Transfermarkt).
The 26-year-old has impressive technique, is a hard worker and plays with a real sense of enthusiasm, dynamism and endeavour.
The Sevilla ace is a really progressive player and always looks to pass forward into attacking areas.
In other words, he is exactly the type of player West Ham should be looking to sign this summer.
A lot of things could still happen of course. For example, Sevilla could lower their demands for Jordan.
The 26-year-old will have just two years remaining on his current deal with the La Liga outfit this summer.
Who knows what will happen. According to Claret and Hugh, however, West Ham’s hopes of signing Joan Jordan this summer seem to be all but over.
