Lozano on West Ham’s shortlist/ Hammers leading race for Man United’s Lingard
West Ham sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax earlier this month.
This has, of course, reduced the Hammers’ options at centre-forward.
David Moyes and co., in turn, are known to be in the market for some fresh legs up top this month.
Now though, yet another centre-forward has been linked with the Londoners.
That man, according to Goal, is Choco Lozano.
The 27-year-old is currently plying his trade in Spain with Cadiz CF, whom he joined last summer from Girona.
Lozano has since gone on to notch 16 appearances in La Liga this term, though he has only scored three and assisted two – a fairly average record for a striker.
However, the above-linked report from Goal does claim there are currently no negotiations underway between West Ham and Lozano.

One player who West Ham do look to be in talks with, however, is Manchester United’s, Jesse Lingard.
The now 28-year-old has struggled for regular football for several seasons now.
He has made just three appearances for the Red Devils this term, garnering just 179 minutes of action.
Despite this, a report from the BBC on Tuesday has claimed that West Ham are leading the race to sign the Englishman on loan.
The report adds that there has been interest in Lingard from elsewhere, but West Ham are best placed if they can make the deal work:
