Reports have emerged claiming that West Ham United are watching Valencia midfielder Javi Fuego.
Marca reported that Hammers chief scout Martin Glover made a check on Fuego in the Copa tie at Rayo Vallecano.
West Ham are expected to open talks with Valencia over a fee for Fuego in the coming days.
West Ham are aware that Fuego still has this season plus another one left on his contract, but feel confident about reaching an agreement with the Spanish club.
They know that Valencia are on the lookout for more midfielders, meaning that Fuego’s exit should be easier to pull off.
