According to a claim in the Italian media, West Ham United are taking an interest in Sevilla attacker Franco Vazquez.

The Argentine playmaker joined the Spanish club from Palermo a couple of seasons ago, but West Ham are presented as confident they could get a deal done for the player.

TMW report West Ham have already made contact about Vazquez, but it’s not reported whether this is with his agent or his club. It’s claimed the Hammers believe they can get a deal done for the South American in this transfer window as the club look to bring in reinforcements.

With Manuel Lanzini sidelined with a serious knee injury for the foreseeable future, Vazquez would be seen as a like for like replacement for his compatriot.
