West Ham United are edging closer towards sealing a deal for Spain youth international forward Toni Martinez, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Premier League side, who currently sit fifth in the English top-flight standings following their most recent 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge against defending league champions Chelsea, are poised to complete a £750,000 transfer agreement for the highly-rated Valencia striker.

The 18-year-old, who has been called up to Spain’s Under-19 squad and has represented his country at Under-17 level, has scored one goal and provided three assists in eight UEFA Youth League appearances for the La Liga outfit so far this season.

The report suggests that Martinez is set to join the Hammers in an initial deal worth around £750,000, although the transfer will involve a 20 per cent (%) sell-on clause for the Spanish side.

Martinez has already impressively found the back of the net over 100 times in Valencia’s youth ranks and will now earn over five times of what he currently pockets in Spain with Slaven Bilic’s men once the proposed deal is confirmed.
