West Ham United have had a £12.5 million offer for striker Scott Hogan rejected by Brentford, according to The Guardian.
The Hammers completed their second new signing of the January transfer window on Friday, with Robert Snodgrass following Jose Fonte to the London Stadium for a fee reportedly in the £10 million region.
Slaven Bilic’s men have been linked with new centre forwards for the entirely of the month, with Hogan’s name repeat redly popping up in the press as a target for West Ham.
However, Brentford appear to be playing hardball over the potential transfer fee, with the Championship outfit not wavering on their reported £15 million valuation of the former Rochdale striker.
With the January window closing on Tuesday night, there is a race against time for Bilic’s charges to add attacking weaponry to the Premier League side’s squad, with Hogan’s future clearly up in the air for the time being.
With Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri set to leave the Hammers this month and Diafra Sakho injured, West Ham have an over-reliance on Andy Carroll to get the side goals currently.
