Mexico international full-back could be heading to West Ham

Premier League side West Ham United has been linked with a move for Sevilla full-back, Miguel Layun.

Layun has been capped 62 times for Mexico, scoring five goals.

The player has Premier League experience after an impressive season at Watford in 2014/15, and also enjoyed a successful two-year spell at Porto.

The current campaign has gone less well for the 29-year-old, playing just seven times in the league all season.

According to Marca, Sevilla can exercise its right-to-buy option for five million euros, but it’s looking increasingly unlikely that the clause will be activated.

The report claims Chicharito’s close friendship with Layun could help get the deal over the line, even though the striker is reportedly on his way out of the club in the summer.

Layun started life at Veracruz in Mexico’s Liga MX but is most well-known for a trophy-laden four-year stint at Club America. He left Mexico for Europe in 2015.
