Reports that West Ham are closing in on a £15m transfer on Brentford striker Scott Hogan appear to be wide of the mark.

West Ham: Striker deal on hold

It had been widely reported that the deal was almost done and the Bees' striker would arrive at the club this week for a fee starting at £10m and moving up to £15m with addons, but that is apparently not quite the case.

Reports now claim the deal is a long way from being done as West Ham believe the price is too high and they also have worries over his injury record, as Hogan suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury back in 2015.
