West Ham’s vast spending spree shows no sign of coming to a close, as Manuel Pellegrini seeks a signing to bolster his options up front.

The Hammers are expected to lose the services of outcast Jordan Hugill before the window slams shut next week and have Andy Carroll sidelined following his latest injury setback, while Javier Hernandez struggled for form last term.

That has led West Ham to eye acquisitions in the market and Marca states the Hammers have entered the hunt for Real Betis striker Antonio Sanabria.

22-year-old Sanabria excelled in LaLiga last term to help Real Betis finish above arch-rivals Sevilla and seal their spot in the Europa League, a campaign they are desperate to keep their star striker for.

French side OGC Nice are also vying for the services of the Paraguay international, who scored eight league goals in 17 appearances last season.

Real Betis share the ownership rights to Sanabria with Roma and would receive only 50% of any fee the Hammers front for a deal.
