West Ham are set to finalise the deal to sign Eintracht Frankfurt forward Sebastien Haller on Friday night.
According to Gazzetto Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, West Ham will meet with Haller’s representatives on Friday to iron out the remaining details before any official announcement is made.

West Ham have agreed a fee with Frankfurt in the region of €40m, which will make him the club’s second most expensive ever signing – behind the arrival of Felipe Anderson from Lazio for £36m last summer.
Haller is set to sign a five-year contract with West Ham that will see him earn at least €3m-per-year.
The French striker caught the eye last season with his exceptional performances for Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. He scored 15 goals in the league, with a further four strikes in all competitions.
Players West Ham could sign
West Ham could bolster their options at the back by signing Bristol City defender Adam Webster.
West Ham have already been linked with a move for the impressive Celta Vigo midfielder.
The Derby right-back is a great prospect for the future and could be a shrewd signing for the Hammers.
The Spanish midfielder is unlikely to get chances at Manchester City and, so, could be available this summer.
