West Ham have seen their hopes of landing in-form Nantes striker Emiliano Sala boosted following claims that he wants to move to England.

According to reports in France, as cited on Sport Witness, the striker is believed to be unhappy at his club and wants to complete a move elsewhere sooner rather than later, with his sights set on the Premier League.

Several English sides have all been linked with moves to sign the striker after his impressive run of form in Ligue 1.

With 11 goals to his name this season, he is outscoring the likes of Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Alongside French superstar Kylian Mbappe, Sala is the joint-top goalscorer in Ligue 1 at this present time.

His performances have not gone unnoticed and West Ham are in the running to sign the player with concerns over the long-term future of Marko Arnautovic, who has attracted interest from Manchester United recently.
