West Ham Scouting £25m Rated Ligue One Hitman With 11 Goals in 12 Games

West Ham are among the teams that have sent scouts to watch Nantes striker Emiliano Sala, according to reports in the UK.

The Hammers reportedly had a representative at Nantes’s game against Angers on Saturday evening.

Leicester City also had someone to see Sala play as his side were held to a 1-1 draw with the Argentine failing to get on the scoresheet.

It was a rare blank for the 28-year-old as he is the joint top goalscorer in Ligue One this campaign, having scored 11 goals in 12 league games.

However, West Ham and Leicester will have a fight on their hands if they want to sign Sala in the January transfer window with Brighton, Fulham, Crystal Palace and Everton all said to be keen on the forward.

Nantes are believed to be willing to listen to offers of around £25m as the striker is close to entering the last 18 months of his contract.
