Nahitan Nández arrived in Europe when Cagliari signed him from Boca Juniors last summer.

Prior to joining the Serie A side, Leeds United were linked with the central midfielder and reports talking about Whites’ interest in the 24-year-old didn’t die down even after he moved to Italy.

TuttoMercatoWeb explains West Ham United are interested in the Uruguay international and they have taken a step forward by submitting a proposal in the last few hours.

The Hammers are looking to sign the player on a loan deal with an obligation to make it permanent for €40m.

It’s claimed the South American wouldn’t want to leave in the final days of the winter market, but the offer received from David Moyes’ side is an ‘important one’.

Should Nández decide to stay, there’s a new contract offer ready for him that will see him earn better wages and his employer will insert a €40m release clause.

TMW adds ‘decisive hours’ are ahead as it’s now down to Cagliari and Nández to make a decision whether he stays or makes the switch to West Ham.
