West Ham Named Among The Frontrunners As PL Clubs Circle 30M Rated Bundesliga Star

West Ham, Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund are the three clubs who are the likeliest to sign Hoffenheim left-back David Raum this summer, according to reports in the German media.

The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea have also been mentioned as potential suitors for the 24-year-old in recent days, but it appears that the Hammers have managed to steal a march on their rivals.

Raum only joined Hoffenheim from Greuther Furth last year but he had an excellent first season in the Bundesliga, racking up a seriously impressive eleven assists.



West Ham boss David Moyes is keen on recruiting a fullback in order to provide some competition for Aaron Cresswell and Raum does seem like a very good candidate.

Hoffenheim are expected to demand between €30m (£26m) and €35m (£30m) so a lot will depend on whether the Irons can stump up the funds necessary to secure the German international’s signature.
