Haller set to snub West Ham
Eintracht Frankfurt forward Sebastien Haller has no plans to join West Ham this summer, according to German reports.
Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is eager to strengthen his attacking options after seeing Marko Arnautovic depart for China.
Haller, who managed 15 goals in 29 Bundesliga games last season and five in 10 in the Europa League, had been rated as a target amid speculation West Ham are lining up a £40million move for the Frenchman.
However, the 25-year-old has stressed on a number of occasions that he is happy at Frankfurt and reports in Germany have stated he will only leave to join a club who are playing in the Champions League next season.
West Ham continue to be linked with Celta Vigo's Mazi Gomez, although Valencia appear to be leading the race for his signature, while Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Balotelli have also been linked with the club in recent days.
