Nolito: Signed for Man City

West Ham have reportedly joined Arsenal and Liverpool in scouting Celta Vigo forward Nolito.

Nolito was linked with Arsenal, Liverpool and his former club Barcelona in January, with the 29-year-old claiming he actually turned down an offer from the Premier League ahead of the winter transfer window.

Scouts from both Arsenal and Liverpool have continued to attend Celta games, according to the Sunday People, but West Ham are now said to have joined the race for a player apparently valued by the Spanish club at around £18million.

Nolito, who plays as a left-sided winger or forward, has contributed 11 goals and six assists in 25 La Liga appearances this season.

He has six caps for the Spain national side and ‘has designs on the Premier League’, the Sunday People says.
