According to the London Evening Standard, West Ham are poised to complete the signing of Adama Traore from Middlesbrough in an £8m deal.
David Sullivan has held talks with the 21-year-old winger today about a move and the transfer could be finalised in the near future, pending a medical.
Traore came through the La Masia academy at Barcelona but failed to break into the first team and joined Aston Villa in a £8m deal in the summer of 2015.
Following their relegation, he joined Middlesbrough at the start of last season for a similar fee and flashed potential but he’s by far the finished product.
Boro, also now of the Championship, are ready to part ways with him for just £8m and West Ham seem to be on the verge of completing the deal.
