West Ham could “pounce” and sign Joan Jordan this summer if his proposed move to Sevilla collapses, according to Mundo Deportivo, via Sport Witness.

The Eibar midfielder has been linked with the Hammers, as they look to continue a productive summer in the transfer market, following the exciting capture of Pablo Fornals from Villarreal.

It is Sevilla who are favourites for his signature, but there appears to a potential stumbling block in the transfer.

They are refusing to pay the €15 million buyout clause in Jordan’s contract, offering €12 million and are “not willing to part with the extra €3 million”.

There is still a fairly good chance that Sevilla’s stance will change, however, with the La Liga club known for playing hardball on occasions.

West Ham are thought to be monitoring the situation, as they weigh up whether or not to jump in and attempt to sign the 24-year-old.
