West Ham United were linked with a move for Rodrigo Battaglia back in April, with O Jogo claiming that the Hammers were interested signing the Sporting Lisbon midfielder in the summer transfer window.

The London club, though, could now face further competition for the former Argentina Under-20 international.

Quality footballer

Battaglia is a very good midfielder with a lot of experience, and the 26-year-old would be a good signing for Fulham, Wolves or the Saints.

The Argentine scored one goal and provided two assists in 21 league starts for Sporting this past season and scored one goal in four Europa League starts, according to WhoScored, and he also played in six Champions League matches for the Portuguese club.
