West Ham are looking to push through a quick deal to sign young Swedish striker Alexander Alp, according to reports in the British press.

The print edition of The Sun on Sunday (Page 57, April 16th 2017) claimed the Hammers are eyeing a ‘quick-deal’ for the 16-year-old ace.

The Swedish youngster has been taken on-trial by West Ham this season, as they eye long-term improvements to their struggling attacking ranks, and impressed during his stay in East London.

West Ham are now in pole position to seal a deal for the Swedish striker, who’s yet to represented current employers AIK Solna at senior level, in what would be an early piece of transfer business.

However, Alp’s arrival alone would not fix West Ham’s problems in attacking areas this season and the Hammers are tipped for a busy summer- where a more senior striker could be secured.

The future of manager Slaven Bilic remains under speculation, as he rapidly approaches the final 12 months of his contract, and that situation could severely impact the club’s movements in the transfer market.
