The Hammers may be seeing an auction on the horizon although club insiders consistently deny any interest from Chelsea and according to a Mirror report the Hammers have a £30 million price tag on the striker.
Reporter Darren Lewis says however the Irons have no intention of selling him after buying him from £12.5m from Mexican side Pachuca last summer and that only a massive offer would change their minds.
But he adds that none of that “has dimmed the interest from Sampdoria ” who are also set to conclude a £6m deal to Spanish midfielder Pedro Obiang to us.
The signing of Obiang, 23, would represent a coup for the Hammers, who have allowed last season’s loanee Alex Song to return to parent club Barcelona because of concerns over his fitness.
