West Ham are one of three Premier League clubs looking at Al-Ahli striker Djaniny Semedo, according to reports in the Portuguese media.
Wolves and Everton are also believed to be tracking the Cape Verde international, who has been prolific in the Saudi Arabian first division.
Al-Ahli signed Djaniny for €10m last July and he went on to score 20 goals in 21 league appearances last season.
Of course, the standard of football in Saudi Arabia is not exactly high but the Hammers do have a past track record of recruiting from the Middle East with some success.
Manuel Lanzini was initially signed on loan from Abu Dhabi side Al-Jazira in July 2015 before making the move permanent in the summer of 2016.
At 28 years of age, Djaniny is a fair bit older compared to when West Ham signed the Argentine, but he could prove to be a low-cost solution who could strengthen the London club’s frontline.
