By: Staff Writer

It's been a quiet start to transfer deadline day as far as West Ham are concerned.

Despite being linked with a string of potential signings this month, only Samir Nasri and reserve striker Mesaque Dju have joined the club since 2019 began.

However several players remain linked with moves boith in and out of the club ahead of Thursday night's 11pm deadline...

Maxi Gomez (Celta Vigo): West Ham's attempts to sign the 22-year-old striker during this transfer window appear dead in the water since the Spanish club announced they'd prefer to keep Gomez for the remainder of the season. A 40million summer bid has been mooted.

Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea): The much-travelled forward has been linked with West Ham since he was first scouted by Sam Allardyce's backroom team five years ago whilst still at Anderlecht. Latest reports suggest that both West Ham and Real Betis are considering a deadline day loan move, although Chelsea would prefer a permanent deal.

Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke): the Championship midfielder has been linked with West Ham, Burnley and Hull City by Sun writer Phil Cadden. This could be the most left field lilnk of the day so far.

Olivier Giroud (Chelsea): Despite having rejected the opportunity to join the Hammers last year, club chiefs are considering a late move for the French international World Cup winner.

Dennis Suarez (Barcelona): Linked with a loan move earlier in the window, Suarez has completed a short-term switch to London rivals Arsenal.

Lucas Perez (Schalke, Betis): The Spanish striker was the subject of a rejected loan offer from Schalke yesterday and is now being sought by Real Betis, from whom Adrian joined West Ham in 2012.

Javier Hernandez (Valencia): The Spanish La Liga side are currently considering a fresh eleventh hour nid for the Mexican international having seen a bid in the region of 7million rejected earlier this week.

Jordan Hugill (Middlesbrough): Currently on loan at the Riverside Stadium, the Championship side are rumoured to be preparing to make a late bid to take the former Preston striker on a permanent contract. A figure of 6million has been mooted.

Reece Oxford (Augsburg): The Under 23 defender is likely to leave on loan ahead of tonight's deadline, although where remains unclear; West Ham are unlikely to allow him to remain in England, however. Bundesliga side Augsburg have been cited as one potential destination today.
