West Ham are set to break their transfer record with a deal valued up to $80 million for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastian Haller.

Haller had been viewed as the Hammers’ top transfer target for some time, and the departures of striking trio Lucas Perez, Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll meant the need to bring in quality reinforcements was increasingly dire.

The 25-year-old French gun first burst onto the scene with his performances for the France Under-21 team in previous years, and attracted significant transfer interest this window after an incredible season where he scored 20 goals in 41 games.

Haller guided the Eintracht to seventh in the Bundesliga as well as the Europa League semi-finals — scoring five times in Europe’s second-biggest cup competition

Prior two his two seasons with Eintracht (33 goals in 77 appearances), Haller scored 51 times in 98 appearances for Dutch side Utrecht.

Looks like Lookman’s leaving

Everton are ready to cash in on $40m England winger Ademola Lookman, after Bundesliga side RB Liepzig upped their offer.

The 21-year-old has earned 48 caps for the Toffees after joining in 2017 from Charlton Athletic.

He spent the second half of the 2017-18 season on loan at the Bundesliga side, scoring five times in 11 appearances.

Everton had rejected an offer from the club this time last year, telling them the youngster was not for sale, but it appears they could not resist an improved bid this time around.

De Ligt-ful

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has arrived in Turin to complete his $120m transfer to Serie A champions Juventus.

Juventus beat out fellow European heavyweights Paris St-Germain, Barcelona and Manchester United for the 19-year-old’s signature.

“I am happy to be here,” De Ligt said to media hordes after touching down in a private jet.

The Dutch youngster was almost unpassable in the club’s Champions League semi-final run, and scored the matchwinning goal to beat his new club in the quarter-finals.

He had joined Ajax’s youth academy at age nine, before becoming the club’s youngest-ever captain.

He also represented the Dutch national team in March 2017 despite having made just two league appearances for the club at that stage.

De Ligt departs having made 77 appearances with eight goals.
