West Ham United’s move for Joan Jordan has come under threat after Sevilla have agreed a deal with the midfielder, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Spanish publication claim that the La Liga club have a deal in place for Jordan, but have only bid £8.9million, compared to the Hammers’ reported £13million offer.
Mundo Deportivo report that Sevilla were wanting to complete a deal for the 24-year-old before the end of the week, making him the second signing of the window for the Spanish club.
Jordan has a wealth of experience in the Spanish top-flight, making 83 appearances for two separate clubs in Eibar and Espanyol.
The weekend of thrills and spills seems destined to continue throughout the week at West Ham. It is no surprise that Sevilla are interested in Jordan, who at only 24-years-old knows the Spanish league like the back of his hand and offers a wealth of experience with room to improve. Even though agreeing terms with Jordan is a huge step for Sevilla, offering Eibar £8.9million could be a huge sticking point, especially when you compare it with what Mario Husillos has reportedly offered. With the Hammers reportedly nearly offering nearly £5million more, Eibar would no doubt much prefer to sell their man to the Premier League club. With Jordan already accepting terms though, he could force a move to Sevilla which would not be good news for the London club. Should West Ham have their bid accepted at the beginning of this week, they must move quickly to offer the midfielder better terms than Sevilla and hope the temptation of the Premier League outweighs that of the La Liga.
