West Ham have made a reported £1.8m offer to Spanish side Sporting Gijon for their forward Oscar Trejo, according to the Mirror.
The Hammers have been in talks with the 25 year old’s agent for several days and have now made a formal offer for him. They will, however, face competition for Trejo, with Toulouse also having believed to have made an offer and Olympiakos interested as well.
The exciting attacker is said to favour a move to England and is keen to leave Sporting, who owe him several months’ wages. Gijon are believed to be holding out for £2.4m for Trejo but may well take what they can get from West Ham, who hope to conclude a deal by Sunday night.
