West Ham are reported to have tabled a bid for Basel striker Arthur Cabral.
The Brazilian has been linked with the Hammers ahead of the January transfer window, although he has also been reported as a potential target for Barcelona.
A new report from 4-4-2.ch claims that the Catalan club are unlikely to be tabling an offer ahead of the January window.
Cabral has been in unbelievable form this season for the Swiss club, scoring 25 goals in 26 games in all competitions thus far this term.
The report states that the Hammers have tabled a bid worth around €20m, which equates to £17m, a figure that the Irons could reach if they identified the right target.
We know that David Moyes is keen to bring a striker into the club in January to provide support to Mikey Antonio, who remains the only out-and-out forward at the club.
Basel are said to be willing to let Cabral go but the deal is not yet complete.
