West Ham United’s ambitious attempt to land Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez is in danger of collapse after it emerged that La Liga outfit Sevilla plan to offer him the chance to remain in Spain.
According to El Desmarque, Sevilla are wasting no time in firming up their plans for the summer transfer window and have identified the 22-year-old as a primary target, although they favour a loan deal over a permanent switch at this point.
The Daily Mirror claims The Hammers hope to make the Spaniard one of their marquee signings in the coming months but it will largely depend on whether the player is keen to ply his trade in the Premier League or spend a term on loan in his homeland in an attempt to prove a point to his parent club by impressing in La Liga.
He has been restricted to 17 appearances in Carlo Ancelotti’s side this season, scoring two goals in the process. He has two years remaining on his current contract.
