Ismaila Sarr

The Athletic reports the Hammers are interested in Watford’s Ismaila Sarr.

The Senegalese winger has attracted several suitors in the English top flight but would cost a reported £50 million.

That would break the record West Ham paid for Haller (£45 million), although they sold the striker to Ajax for less than half that amount (£20.25 million).

Olivier Giroud

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims Chelsea value reported West Ham target Olivier Giroud at only £4.4 million.

Eurosport had claimed the Frenchman was being lined up as a successor to Haller at West Ham.

Giroud is out of contract in the summer and could leave Stamford Bridge for free. That situation could pave the way for the Hammers to land the proven Premier League striker for a cut-price fee this month.

Ones who got away

Arkadiusz Milik

Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik has agreed a £7 million move to Marseille a week after West Ham saw a bid rejected by the Italian club, as reported by RMC Sport.

West Ham were ready to increase their £6 million bid for Poland international Milik, according to Onet.

However, this looks like one striker move that has failed to hit the back of the net.

Kai Wagner

MLSSoccer reports West Ham target Kai Wagner has extended his contract at Philadelphia Union for an extra year with the option of a further year after that.

In November, German outlet Kicker reported Wagner was attracting interest from West Ham and Fulham.

Yet the latest update suggests the Hammers will have to wait until December 2022 to land the defender.

Choco Lozano

Cadiz striker Antony ‘Choco’ Lozano wants to stay in La Liga for “many years” despite interest from West Ham, speaking to the club’s YouTube channel.

Lozano said: “I have done very well here. We have had good results. We succeeded and now we are in the Primera, enjoying ourselves.

“I also have the dream of staying in the first division for many years. I want to fight for that dream with Cadiz.”
