Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed striker Sebastien Haller is set to travel to London ahead of a move to West Ham United.

The 25-year-old is set to undergo a medical on Wednesday, with the Hammers believed to have agreed a £45million deal with the Bundesliga club.

He has previously played for Auxerre and FC Utrecht but his form last season has seen his stock rise in the last 12 months.

Confirming the deal, Frankfurt released a statement on their Twitter feed.

It read: ‘Eintracht and @WestHamUtd have agreed terms for the transfer of @HallerSeb.

‘Haller has now been cleared to undergo a medical in London.

If all goes to plan then Haller will sign with the Hammers #SGE.

‘ West Ham coach Manuel Pellegrini has been looking for a new striker after losing Lucas Perez, Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic in the last few months.
