According to a report from Football.London, West Ham are keen on Norwich City ace Emiliano Buendia, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

The Argentine ace can play anywhere along the front-line. He is most comfortable when deployed out on the wing, but can also operate in the number 10 position.
