West Ham are chasing Sporting Lisbon star Rodrigo Battaglia in £26.4million summer deal, according to reports in Portugal. Fresh reports claim the Hammers are aiming to bring the 26-year-old Argentine player to the London Stadium this summer.
The Irons face competition from Serie A giants Inter Milan, Roma and Napoli for Argentinian star Battaglia’s signature this summer. Portugalese news outlet A Bolo have linked the Hammers twice this week in stories relating the midfielder playing in the World cup in Russia.
Battaglia has made 43 appearances in all competitions for Sporting this season – in the Portuguese top flight, the Champions League and Europa League scoring 2 goals.
