- Deal could depend on West Ham finding replacement
- Haller has failed to live up to expectations after £45m move
Ajax want to strengthen their attack by signing Sébastien Haller, who has failed to live up to expectations since joining West Ham for a record £45m in 2019. The striker has struggled to adapt to the pace of English football and is prepared to make the switch to the Dutch club.
It is understood Ajax hope to pay about £25m for Haller, who became the most expensive player in West Ham’s history with his move from Eintracht Frankfurt 18 months ago. However a deal could be dependent on David Moyes’s side being able to replace the 26-year-old. West Ham’s only other senior forward, Michail Antonio, has a history of hamstring injuries and has missed a significant portion of this season.
