West Ham appear to be edging towards their first proper summer signing with reports suggesting Édson Álvarez will fly to London within the next 24 hours to undergo a medical.
Reports suggest the 25- year-old Mexican has agreed a five-year contract worth up to £148,000 per week.
Over the weekend senior club sources confirmed significant bid had been tabled to Ajax for Álvarez in excess of the £25m quoted by multiple reports.
Romano claims of £34/35m probably means an offer of €40 million which converts to £34.48m.
Whether West Ham will continue to pursue James Ward Prowse and/or Youssouf Forfana after this signing is debatable with other positions a bigger priority
