West Ham to make new bid for Real Madrid striker
By talkSPORT | Tuesday, July 10, 2012
West Ham are set to launch another bid for Spanish forward Joselu as the 22-year-old nears the Bernabeu exit door.
Joselu, 22, has emerged as one of the hottest young forwards in Europe after his goalscoring exploits for Real Madrid B.
The 22-year-old, who was born in Germany, scored 26 goals as the reserve side secured promotion to the second tier of Spanish football.
However, according to Spanish newspaper Marca, the Spain under-21 international is seeking a move away from the capital club as he fears he will not be able to break into Jose Mourinho’s first-team.
West Ham have already seen a £4.4m bid for Joselu turned down, with the Spanish giants holding out for at least £6.3m.
And West Ham will have to be swift if they want to land the 22-year-old, with German Bundesliga sides Hoffenheim and Borussia Moenchengladbach monitoring the forward’s availability.
