Eintracht Frankfurt star Sebastien Haller is set to sign a five-year contract with Premier League side West Ham.
According to Gazzetto Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, West Ham are on the verge of completing a deal to sign the French forward.

West Ham are said to be paying Frankfurt a fee in the region of €40m for the clinical finisher.
Haller was superb for Frankfurt in the Bundesliga last season, as he notched 15 goals for the club – despite often playing second fiddle to Luca Jovic.
This means that Frankfurt could go into next season without two of their top scorers from the 2018/19 campaign, having already sold Jovic to Spanish giants Real Madrid earlier this summer.
The French striker, Haller, joined Frankfurt from Dutch outfit FC Utrecht in 2017 and has scored 35 goals for the club to date.
