West Ham Transfer Roundup: Sanson targeted, Roma ace on radar, £58m for La Liga pair

As West Ham look to improve on their tenth-placed finish from last season, there are sure to be busy in this year’s transfer window. Having spent big last year, they’ll need to splash out again in order to further improve. With that in mind, here’s a look at the latest transfer rumours involving the Irons…

West Ham in battle for Sanson

One new arrival could be Marseille’s Morgan Sanson, according to Sky Sports. After the Ligue 1 side failed to qualify for the Champions League, they are valuing the former Montpellier midfielder at €35m (£31.21m) and West Ham are in talks to sign him. However, they could face competition from Wolves and Newcastle for his signature.

Gonalons to the London Stadium?

It seems that West Ham want to boost their midfield in particular, with AS Roma’s Maxime Gonalons also on their radar. According to L’Equipe, West Ham is a potential loan destination for the Serie A man next season, after he spent last term on loan at Seville. Everton have been mooted as well.

La Liga double swoop on the cards

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are also looking to make a double swoop for Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gomez and Stanislav Lobotka, according to the Daily Mail. The two are valued at £58m by the Spanish side, although Valencia have strong interest in the towering striker.
