Sebastian Haller celebrates scoring for Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed that the two clubs have agreed a fee for Sebastian Haller.

A former France Under-21 global who came through the ranks at Auxerre, West Ham are reportedly ready to spend £45million on the forward - a fee which would break their transfer record.

But the Frenchman had initially wanted to play Champions League football next season.

The 19-year-old signed a new contract with the Hammers in March - one that will run until at least the summer of 2022.

West Ham are, however, prepared to splash the cash again in order to bring much-needed firepower into the London Stadium.

Marko Arnautovic, after much speculation surrounding his future since the turn of the year, then completed a switch to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

Regardless Amber excited dashed into the hideaway, where Greg excitedly awaited to greet her. "Sit down? That was really rude". The Londoner was dumped during tonight's episode and left alone when Michael chose to remain behind without her.

"The player really wants to come to West Ham - he has made that clear to us so we have to believe this is now possible".

The Hammers had been linked with a move for Celta striker Maxi Gomez, who scored 31 league goals in two seasons for the La Liga side, but he moved to Valencia at the weekend.

Haller scored 15 goals in 23 Bundesliga starts last season as Eintracht finished in seventh place. In 77 appearances for Frankfurt, the 25-year-old registered 33 goals.

He's yet to be called up to the France worldwide squad, but he had a very good record for France Under-21s, scoring 13 goals in 20 appearances between 2013 and 2016.

Simply through Haller's physique, fans can expect a host of lazy comparisons to Andy Carroll during his early stages at the club, but in fact what they'll be getting is a natural goalscorer who not only can, but will get the best out of his teammates.
