Colombian international Luis Muriel is the latest striker to be linked with West Ham.

Muriel, 26, has been playing for Sampdoria for the past two seasons and has represented his country 15 times since 2012.

However he is expected to leave Italy this summer - and West Ham have been named as one potentially interested party.

Although Muriel had been expected to join La Liga side Seville, West Ham are reported (Tuttomercatoweb) to have made their interest known in recent days.

Meanwhile a fee of 26million has been mooted by the Italian press; Muriel cost I Blucerchiati in the region of 12million when both he and Andrea Coda moved from Udinese in 2015.

* Long-term West Ham target striker Kelechi Iheanacho is on the verge joining Leicester City, say the (BBC). West Ham are rumoured to have ended their interest in signing the 25million-rated goalscorer.
