West Ham are keen on landing an eighth summer signing but a defender could leave, according to reports.

According to the Twitter account @ExWHUemployee – considered a reliable source of transfer news – the Hammers are keen on Corinthians striker Angel Romero.

Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski, Fabian Balbuena, Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson have already made the move to the London Stadium this summer as new manager Manuel Pellegrini has been backed in the transfer window.

ExWHUemployee tweeted: “As I am not on radio show this week here is one forward we are very keen on: Angel Romero, 26 year old striker for Corinthians. Former team mate of Fabian Balbuena and a Paraguay international. Twin brother of Oscar Romero. Pellegrini and Husillos very aware of him.”

Meanwhile, Sky Sports News claim that the Hammers will allow defender Reece Oxford to leave the club if an offer of £10m arrives.

The 19-year-old spent time on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, and it is believed the Bundesliga outfit are interested in a possible permanent deal.
