West Ham are tracking Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastien Haller, according to the Frankfurter Neue Presse (FNP).
The German newspaper reports that the Hammers and Newcastle have “set their sights” on recruiting the Frenchman this summer.
Haller has had a very good season for Frankfurt, having scored 20 goals and provided 12 assists in 41 appearances.
FNP report that the 24-year-old has placed doubt over his long term future at the Bundesliga club, after providing a cryptic answer to a question about where he’ll be playing next campaign, following the final day defeat to Bayern Munich.
At 6ft 3, Haller is good in the air and is excellent at holding up the ball. West Ham may be looking at him as a possible replacement for Andy Carroll, who will leave the London Stadium at the end of his contract this month.
The Hammers have also been linked with moves for West Brom’s Salomon Rondon and Fulham’s Alexandar Mitrovic as possible alternatives.
