West Ham are closing in on a double signing as they pursue AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca and Sao Paolo’s Jonathan Calleri.
Jack Sullivan, the son of club chairman David Sullivan, revealed that the Hammers were close to recruiting the two strikers.
He revealed that a fee had been agreed with AC Milan while Calleri has agreed to the move.
Jack said on Twitter: “Calleri has agreed to come however, it is subject to a work permit application in a weeks time.
“We have agreed a fee with AC Milan on Bacca and he has said, he will tell us in the next 48 hours if he is coming!!”
He went on to apologise if some were not happy with the news but said he gave the update as a recent poll of fans revealed they wanted to be kept in the loop with the club’s pursuit of strikers.
Bacca is at the top of Slaven Bilic’s wish list after an active summer transfer market for West Ham.
His signings to date include Sofiane Feghouli from Valencia, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Harvard Nordtveit and Ashley Fletcher from Barnsley.
But strikers have been hard to land and the chairman said it was down to the club not being able to offer Champions League football in the 2016/17 season.
