West Ham are closing on a deal for Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri.
The youngster is currently playing on-loan in Brazil with Sao Paulo from Deportivo Maldonado.
TMW says West Ham have intensified negotiations with Deportivo Maldonado in recent days to get a deal done.
Calleri has also been the subject of interest from Inter Milan, but the Italians are reluctant to compete with the Hammers in an auction.
The prolific forward has been likened to Irons hero Carlos Tevez in Argentina.
