There’s less than two weeks to go in the January transfer window, clubs are starting to scramble to secure their winter moves.
West Ham are said to be willing to break their transfer record to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface.
However, The Hammers will have to battle it out with Newcastle and Chelsea as both Premier League clubs are interested in signing the 23-year-old.
Nevertheless, West Ham’s technical director Tim Steidten is confident they can get the job done during the January transfer window – according to The Sun.
Boniface has been a big hit in the Bundesliga after joining the club from Union Saint-Gilloise during the summer transfer window, scoring 10 goals for the German side.

Liverpool are said to be interested in Atalanta star Teun Koopmeiners, although they could face stiff competition for his signature.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Football Italia), Juventus and Newcastle are also interested in the 25-year-old midfielder.
This is not the first time Koopmeiners – who is under contract with Atalanta until 2027 – has been linked with Jurgen Klopp’s side.
However, Atalanta have no intention of letting him go in January, and with two-and-a-half years still to run on his contract.
Additionally, Atalanta also have the option to extend that deal by a further year – meaning Liverpool would miss out on the 25-year-old.
