West Ham are closing in on a deal to sign Sebastien Haller from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt this summer. 

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, West Ham are poised to sign the forward for €40m.

Schira claims that Haller will sign a five-year contract with the Hammers – replacing Marko Arnautovic, who recently completed a move to China.

Haller enjoyed a stellar 2018/19 campaign with Frankfurt as he netted 19 goals in all competitions for the German side – including an impressive 15 in the Bundesliga. 

The 25-year-old has scored 32 goals in 75 games for Frankfurt since joining the club in 2017 from FC Utrecht. 

After missing out on a deal to sign Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, bringing in Haller would be a real coup for Manuel Pellegrini as he looks to push for a Europa League spot next season.
