Eintracht Frankfurt Confirm Transfer Of Sebastian Haller To West Ham

Eintracht Frankfurt Confirm Transfer Of Sebastian Haller To West Ham

West Ham United look set to pull off a big transfer coup with Eintracht Frankfurt confirming the two clubs have agreed a deal for striker Sebastian Haller.

For quite some time West Ham have issues with signing strikers with their transfers rarely paying off and struggling to score in the Premier League.

Now the Hammers looked to have pulled off a big signing that should finally sort out their issues. Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed that the two clubs have agreed a fee for Sebastian Haller.

Sky Sports report that the Premier League club will be paying £45 million for the 25-year-old striker who partnered Luka Jovic, now at Real Madrid, for Frankfurt last season.

Haller scored 15 times in the Bundesliga, also getting nine assists, in just 29 appearances as Frankfurt finished seventh in the league to claim a Europa League spot for next season.

In Europe's second competition the striker bagged five goals as they reached the semi-final, before losing on penalties to eventual champions Chelsea.

The Hammers had been linked with a move for Celta striker Maxi Gomez, who scored 31 league goals in two seasons for the La Liga side, but he moved to Valencia at the weekend.

Manuel Pellegrini will be delighted to have got his hands on Haller with the team short of goal scoring options, after Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll all left in the summer.

Before Haller arrives there is only Javier Hernandez and Jordan Hugill in their team as recognised strikers with the latter having only played three times in the top tier for the club.

Since 2010 the Irons have signed 38 strikers and between them they've only managed 203 goals in 957 games.

They have already added highly rated midfielder Pablo Fornals to the team from Villarreal for next season and the addition of Haller would be a very good start to their transfer dealings.

Will Sebastian Haller finally break the curse of West Ham strikers?
