LONDON (Reuters) - West Ham United have signed French striker Sebastien Haller from Bundesliga team Eintracht Frankfurt for an undisclosed club record fee, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old joins on a five-year deal with an option of a further year, becoming the Londoners’ fourth signing of the summer.
British media reports put the figure at 45 million pounds ($56 million).
West Ham’s previous record signing was attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson from Lazio last July for a reported initial 35 million pounds, rising to a potential 42 million.
