West Ham Readying €10 Million Move For Barcelona Player

West Ham Readying €10 Million Move For Barcelona Player

West Ham have been searching for a forward for about three years now, and one of their reported targets this summer is Barcelona's Munir El Haddadi.

The 21-year old was tipped for big things at the Nou Camp after he burst onto the scene in the first-team in 2014 in impressive fashion and has since gone on to make 45 appearances for the club, scoring ten times.

Despite scoring in the Spanish Super Cup win over Sevilla back in August, he was sent out on loan to Valencia for the entirety of the 2016/17 season, where he scored seven times.

With first-team opportunities still hard to come by, and Barcelona stocked with attacking talent, Munir, although he will be returning to training with the Blaugrana tomorrow, is free to leave the club in this summer and has plenty of potential suitors.

Catalan newspaper SPORT, via Sport Witness say that three Premier League clubs: West Ham, Southampton and Crystal Palace have all registered interest in the Spaniard and are all prepared to offer between €8-10 million for his services.

It's believed that Barcelona are looking for around €14 million euros for a team to take Munir off their books, and that price tag has been met by Roberto Mancini's Zenit St Petersburg.

However, Munir is said to be against the idea of moving to Russia - casting doubt on a deal coming to fruition there.

And so a Premier League move looks most likely, and Barcelona may well have to lower their asking price in order for a deal to be struck.

Bundesliga outfit Schalke have also been linked with Munir, who has a single Spanish national team appearance to his name.
