According to ESPN, West Ham are interested in signing Long from Red Bulls in the summer transfer window.
ESPN has claimed of interest in the central defender from an unnamed French club, and the American’s agent Higgins has claimed that Red Bulls are asking for too much in transfer fee for the 26-year-old.
Higgins has criticised the fee that Red Bulls want for Long, who is one of the better central defenders in Major League Soccer.
Higgins told ESPN: "They told Aaron yesterday that he was worth $15m (£12.34m), which is ridiculous. [The Red Bulls] say they're not going to sell Aaron unless they get $15m (£12.34m).
“They don't think Aaron is good enough for RB Leipzig or Red Bull Salzburg. But the Red Bulls are saying even though he'll be 27 years old [in October], if a team really wants Aaron, they'll come in for him and that his value is similar to defenders in the Premier League."
