West Ham Closing In On West Brom Target

West Ham Closing In On West Brom Target

Head coach Unai Emery said after that match that the club is likely to sell a couple of players this week as they look to trim the squad.

West Ham were already interested but now West Brom have joined the race to sign him.

Capped 88 times by Colombia, Sanchez would add experience to a position where West Ham do not have depth.

Despite West Brom's attempts to hijack the move, the Hammers are still leading the way to sign him due to their Premier League status.

It's understood the club are in talks to bring in Colombia global Carlos Sanchez.

'West Ham have great fans and play in an wonderful stadium, so to sign here brings me great joy.

Another midfielder reportedly eyed by West Ham before the transfer window slams shut is Chelsea outcast Danny Drinkwater, who has struggled for first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge since his switch from Leicester past year.

Since making that move a permanent one, Sanchez has only made nine appearances for Fiorentina and was loaned out to Espanyol as he struggled for a first-team spot in Florence.

Wilshere has jumped the gun by revealing the 29-year-old inside the Hammers dressing room on his Instagram story and it appears like the deal has been wrapped up.

West Ham travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on Liverpool in the first game of the season.

Arsenal have reportedly accepted an offer from Portuguese club, Sporting Lisbon for the transfer of their striker, Lucas Perez.
