West Ham are not currently progressing in talks to sign Arnaut Danjuma, with boss David Moyes not convinced by the player.
There have been reports overnight claiming that the Hammers are closing in on a deal to sign the Villarreal ace, for a fee in excess of £30m.
But a top source has told us quite simply this morning: “It’s not true.”
Moyes did take a close look at Danjuma, with scouts having watched him, but there is a concern over his ability to track back, and there is also a feeling that he can go missing in games.
While he is currently under contract with Villarreal, Danjuma has played in England before with Bournemouth, and he hardly set the world alight.
During his time with the Cherries, he made 14 Premier League appearances and did not score a goal or provide an assist.
The Hammers have so far signed Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola permanently this summer and Moyes would like to sign reinforcements to his forward line if the right player can be found.
