West Ham are poised to complete the signing of Valencia striker Toni Martinez.

According to The Mirror, West Ham United will sign Valencia striker Toni Martinez this week, with the deal costing just £750,000 up front.

The Hammers are pushing for a Champions League place under Slaven Bilic, and even if they don't manage to finish in the top four, Europa League qualification looks likely, and Bilic is bound to be active in this summer's transfer window.

A new striker appears to be on West Ham's wish list, and whilst the Hammers are on the verge of an addition in the final third, it may not be a big-name signing that they're expecting.

The Mirror report that West Ham will imminently confirm the signing of Valencia teenager Toni Martinez, with the forward all set to make the move to East London at the end of the season.

Martinez, 18, has come up through the ranks with Valencia and has been a regular with their youth teams, but with a blocked path to the first-team, the youngster has decided to move on.

The Spanish Under-19 international, who can play up front or out wide, will attempt to further his career in the Premier League in what could be a bargain deal for West Ham.

It's claimed that the deal will cost just £750,000, though Valencia allegedly have a host of clauses and add-ons in the agreement, whilst they have also inserted a buy-back clause, meaning they would be able to re-sign Martinez for a set fee further down the line, should he impress in East London.

Do you think Martinez will be a bargain for West Ham?
