West Ham United are reportedly keen on Alex Moreno.

According to Estadio Deportivo, a mystery English club are prepared to make an offer to sign Real Betis defender Alex Moreno.

It's claimed that both Moreno and Loren Moron are attracting interest in the Premier League, but Betis don't want to sell either.

English and German sides are claimed to have serious interest in Moreno, with one English side preparing an eight-figure bid for Moreno.

 

That could be anybody in the Premier League, but it does point towards West Ham United being the team in question.

Grada3 reported last week that West Ham were watching Moreno, who Betis signed for just €7million (£6.4million) from Rayo Vallecano last summer.

Moreno has a €40million (£36.6million) release clause in his deal, and Betis aren't exactly under great pressure to sell as things stand.

The Spaniard has impressed this season with four assists, and West Ham need a regular left back given that neither Aaron Cresswell nor Arthur Masuaku have made the spot their own.

Moreno fits the bill, and with the claims of an eight-figure bid coming just days after West Ham's interest was reported, it points towards David Moyes' side making their move.
