West Ham United are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal to sign striker Scott Hogan from Brentford, according to The Sun.

The Premier League side, who currently sit 13th in the English top-flight standings after back-to-back league defeats to Leicester City and Manchester United respectively, have been heavily linked with the Championship goalscorer during the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old, who has previously played for the likes of Halifax Town, Hyde and Rochdale, has impressively netted 14 goals and provided one assist in 26 appearances in all competitions for The Bees so far this season.

Hogan, who arrived at Griffin Park for just £750,000 back in July 2014 from Rochdale, has already been the subject of three failed bids from the Hammers.

However, the report now suggests that West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is close to wrapping up a £15m deal for the forward, having had their previous £12.5m offer turned down.

Former club Rochdale, from League One, are also set to pocket 25 per cent of the eventual transfer fee.
