Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed that Sebastien Haller will undergo a medical at West Ham. The Bundesliga club and West Ham have agreed on the terms of this transfer and ‘Haller will join the Hammers’ if he completes his medical.

West Ham’s reliable insider EXWHUEmployee has given more details on this. He has added that West Ham are hoping to get this deal done today, although it might have to wait until tomorrow.

On Twitter, EXWHUEmployee said: “As is being reported elsewhere it looks like we are going to book in a medical for Haller today in the anticipation that we complete the deal. This is still slightly ambitious at this stage. More to come…

Sebastien Haller: West Ham’s new club-record signing?

West Ham have moved on from Maxi Gomez quickly. In the space of one week, Marko Arnautovic joined Shanghai SIPG and Gomez decided to move to Valencia instead of West Ham.

But the Hammers have acted quickly and switched their attention to Haller. The 25-year-old has become West Ham’s priority and it looks like he could be joining the club shortly.

Haller will be a marquee striker signing for West Ham and it looks like he will be a club-record fee. West Ham broke their club-record transfer fee last summer bringing in Felipe Anderson for a reported £36m fee (BBC Sport).

Sky Sports News report that Haller will join West Ham for £45m while Claret & Hugh believes the fee is £40.5m plus £4.5m in add-ons. Either way, West Ham will be breaking their transfer record to sign Haller. Let’s hope the Frenchman lives up to expectations.
