West Ham United continues to pursue attacking depth for the 2016-17 season, and it may’ve convinced an in-demand attacker to come to the Olympic Stadium.
The Hammers may also be losing an attacker as well.
L’Equipe reports that Valencia midfielder Sofiane Feghouli is close to bringing his talents to London to join Slaven Bilic. The same report says Sevilla, Villarreal, Inter, Manchester United, Fenerbahçe and a Chinese club wanted Feghouli, but that he likes what Bilic is selling.

Feghouli, 26, is a regular in the Algeria set-up and scored a PK against Belgium in the 2014 World Cup. His La Liga scoring went down this season but he notched four goals in the Champions League and Europa League.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail claims that Diafra Sakho is hoping to force West Ham’s hand when it comes to whether or not it’ll sell the striker to Sunderland. Sam Allardyce is willing to spend $18 million on the Senegalese forward, whose goal production dropped by half in his second season at West Ham.
