Upton Park side keen on Spanish Under 21 international.
West Ham continue their hunt for much needed striking additions with a proposed move for Real Madrid youngster Jese Rodriguez according to Sports Direct News.
The 20 year old has impressed many this season but would perhaps benefit from more regular first team action, which he is unlikely to receive at the Bernabeu any time soon.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has seen his side net just nine goals in a dozen Premier League fixtures and will hope to resolve the problem in the January transfer window to help pull his Upton Park side clear of the drop zone.
The Spanish Under 21 international is yet to start a La Liga match this term but has managed to score a goal against Barcelona and laid on two assists after coming on as sub against Almeria last night.
West Ham are also said to be in talks with Uruguayan veteran Diego Forlan, who could be keen to return to the Premier League for a fresh challenge, having failed in his previous spell in the English top tier with Man United.
