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.
O Jogo reported that West Ham were going to have to compete with Inter Milan, Napoli and AS Roma for the signature of the 26-year-old midfielder.
The London club, though, could now face further competition for the former Argentina Under-20 international.
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.
