West Ham United want to sign Sevilla ace Joan Jordan this summer according to a report from El Gol Digital.
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice have forged a wonderful partnership in the middle of the park.
Moyes has only Mark Noble in reserve, however, and as the 33-year-old proved once again last night, he is just not at the required level anymore.
Signing a top class central midfielder should be one of the Scot’s main priorities this summer.
And El Gol Digital claim that Sevilla ace Joan Jordan is a target for West Ham.
The Hammers will allegedly face competition from the likes of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Napoli for the 26-year-old’s signature, however.
West Ham would be getting a great player in Joan Jordan
The Spaniard is a top class talent.
He has racked up six assists and one goal in 25 La Liga games for Sevilla this season (Transfermarkt).
Jordan has impressive technique, is a hard worker and plays with a real sense of enthusiasm, dynamism and endeavour.
The 26-year-old is a really progressive player and always looks to pass forward into attacking areas.
According to FBREF, Jordan has made more forward passes than anyone else in the Sevilla team this season.
There is one big problem for West Ham, however. Jordan has a €60 million (£51 million) release clause inserted into his current contract according to El Gol Digital.
That will obviously be too much for the Hammers to spend on one player this summer.
Perhaps if Sevilla are prepared to sell the Spaniard for closer to £25-30 million, West Ham might have a chance of signing him.
It remains to be seen whether we will be able to pick him up for that kind of fee, however.
