Report: Hammers eyeing Bundesliga trio

West Ham want to sign three players from the Bundesliga, according to a new report.

SportBILD claims that the Hammers are keeping a close eye on a trio of players who are currently operating in Germany.

Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi is said to be one such target, having impressed since joining the club from Liverpool on a permanent basis.

Awoniyi has scored 13 goals thus far this season and he has a release clause in his contract that stands at €20m, which equates to £16.8m.

David Raum is said to be another target; he plays at left-back for Hoffenheim and is another player with a release clause, although this one is €30m, or £25.2m.

And rounding out the trio is Jeremiah St Juste.

He is a central defender who plays for Mainz but there is serious competition for his signature, with the likes of Leicester and Sevilla also interested.

He would cost around £10.1m.
