Is that another exciting attacking prospect inching over the horizon towards the promised Premier League land? It seems that way, with West Ham reportedly on the brink of clinching a club-record deal to sign striker Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt. West Ham bound? So who is the guy? And is he really worth £45m? Well, in this current market, the statistics certainly suggest so. In total Haller posted 20 goals and 12 assists in all competitions last season, improving on his 13 and seven respectively the year before. Sébastien Haller is 25, French and loves a goal 🤩 He's scored 84 in 175 games over the last five seasons… Now he could be on the verge of joining the Premier League 🙌 pic.twitter.com/2kQ1ytIMVf — Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) July 16, 2019 He’s a big boy – at 1.90m and labelled the ‘bulldozer’ before – but his touch and awareness defy his size. With Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll departing the club this summer West Ham desperately need attacking recruits, so Haller looks like the perfect fit. Like Carroll he’s a menace in the air, winning more aerial duels than anyone else in the Bundesliga last season (according to WhoScored). What could Sebastien Haller bring to fantasy football? Haller was part of a formidable front three at Frankfurt alongside Ante Rebic and new Real Madrid boy Luka Jovic. Between them they scored 41 Bundesliga goals last season, with Haller grabbing 15 of those from just 23 starts. According to WhoScored, he was also Frankfurt’s highest rated player in the Bundesliga last season at 7.55. Haller fends off Nioolas Sule [boxout headline=”Play fantasy football in 2019/20″ featured-image=”450712″] You can play THREE different games with Dream Team this season – Season, Weekender and Draft Draft is new for this season and will increase competition among mini leagues The game will open for business in mid-July [/boxout] That’s some stat considering all the fuss made about Jovic. With Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and new signing Pablo Fornals feeding him he should get plenty of service, while his assists record suggests he’s an equally useful provider himself. Likely to be the Hammers’ main starting striker, we envisage him being priced at around £3m on Dream Team this season. That’s the same as potential new-team mate Anderson, as well as the likes of Richarlison and Gerard Deulofeu. Haller will be priced the same as Richarlison What are the other player prices? We released our full player price list last week and there are some very interesting values this season. Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero lead the way as our most expensive selections, meaning Harry Kane looks a potential bargain at £7m just behind them. And just £3m for Chelsea new boy Christian Pulisic? Well I never… Check out the full price list here. What are the best fantasy team names? Every year selecting your team name becomes more and more important. After all you wouldn’t want to be accused of stealing someone else’s masterpiece, would you? Whether you’re more 50 Shades O’Shea than Pjanic at the Disco you should find our extensive list both useful and entertaining.

Following Marko Arnautovic’s departure to China, West Ham’s priority has been to recruit a new striker. Things didn’t get off to the best of starts after Uruguayan frontman Maxi Gomez opted to join Valencia from Celta Vigo earlier this month. Arnautovic has left West Ham for Shanghai SIPG However, it looks as though the Hammers have found their Arnautovic replacement as Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sebastien Haller is on his way to London to have a medical with the Premier League club. The Bundesliga side club and West Ham have agreed a deal for the Frenchman, 25, which is thought to be worth around £45million. Haller scored 19 goals for Frankfurt in all competitions last season, a decent return given he had to compete with the likes of Luka Jovic and Ante Rebic for game time. Striker Haller is on his way to West Ham This has been a busy summer window for West Ham which has seen them get rid of the likes of Lucas Perez and the injury-prone Andy Carroll. They also sealed a deal for exciting Spain midfielder Pablo Fornals on a five-year contract earlier this summer. With Haller and Fornals, West Ham have the potential to be a formidable team next season and talkSPORT.com has taken a look at how they might look in the 2019/20 campaign. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] [bc_video video_id=”6050419084001″ account_id=”6023583704001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Adrian Durham thinks that West Ham could push into the top four next season in the Premier League “] Option 1 – 4-1-4-1 The Hammers adopted this system last season and they’re becoming a more solid outfit having won their last three matches of the season. Declan Rice should be a regular in the holding role but further up the pitch is where the changes in personnel could happen. Ahead of Rice will be a midfield four which should see Fornals play alongside veteran Mark Noble but the Spaniard would have the more technical and attacking role, while Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio could go on the left and right wings respectively. Haller is a striker similar to Arnautovic in that he can hold up the ball well so should do just fine on his own up top. West Ham played a similar system to this last season Option 2 – 4-1-4-1 (Attacking) However, the signings of Haller and Fornals could see West Ham go more attacking instead. In this system, Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini could opt to play the Spaniard in an attacking midfield role alongside Manuel Lanzini, who is a fan favourite. Anderson is on the left while Andriy Yarmolenko, who sustained a torn Achilles early last season could go on the right. But this system would leave Noble struggling for a place in the starting XI. At the age of 32, his West Ham career could be coming to a gradual end. Could West Ham be a more attacking team next season? Option 3 – 4-3-3 Pellegrini may go for a very positive style of play following Haller’s arrival and could even try a 4-3-3 system. Haller would be at the tip of the front line and would effectively bring the likes of Anderson, Lanzini and Yarmolenko into the game. West Ham would have a midfield three with Rice in the holding role, alongside Noble and Fornals. Fornals would have more licence to join the attacks due to his great quality which he showcased during the Under-21 European Championship in the summer. Could Haller and Fornals’ arrivals see them adopt a new system? Option 4 – 4-2-2-2 Former Manchester City boss could go back to winning formula after bringing in Haller and Fornals. He used this formation successfully at Villarreal and at City but it could put a couple of fan favourites on the fringe. Rice would, more than likely, form a shield with Noble or Jack Wilshere, allowing Arthur Masuaku and Ryan Fredericks to push further forward. The high full-backs should see Anderson and Fornals operating behind a front two of Haller and Javier Hernandez, who was recently given the no.9 shirt. Haller’s all-round ability would complement that of a poacher like Chicharito and could see them both in the goals. Another option for Pellegrini with his new signings?
