West Ham’s activity in the transfer window shows no signs of coming to an end and another name has been linked with the Hammers.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo indicate West Ham are eyeing the services of Barcelona midfielder Rafinha, who is tipped to leave the LaLiga champions before the new season commences.
Rafina spent time last season on-loan with Inter Milan and has returned to Catalonia to begin preparations for the new campaign, although it is clear Ernesto Valverde does not see him as a regular starter.
The Brazil ace is keen to secure first-team football with a top European side and an exit from the Camp Nou is on the cards, though West Ham will face fierce competition in the market.
Reports state that clubs in Italy and France have expressed an interest in the 25-year-old, although the side pushing for his services the most is the Hammers – but their lack of European football could prove to be a major stumbling block.
