West Ham enquire for Sevilla’s Correa

West Ham have made an enquiry for Sevilla forward Joaquin Correa with a view to a summer transfer, according to reports.

The 23-year-old played just 21 minutes in the Andalusian club’s final four matches of the campaign under the tutelage of interim Coach Joaquin Caparros, who is now the Director of Football.

Estadio Deportivo cite a report in Tuttomercatoweb which confirms the player’s change of agent and that he has spoken to new Hammers sporting director Mario Husillos, formerly of Malaga.

Los Rojiblancos paid €13m to sign the Argentine from Sampdoria in the summer of 2016 and his market value has soared in the two years since, with any deal expected to be worth double that amount.

Correa netted seven goals and provided seven assists last season at Sevilla.
