West Ham seal a £15m deal to sign Ecuador and Pachua striker Enner Valencia, according to reports.
West Ham United have reportedly sealed a record-equaling £15m deal to sign Ecuador striker Enner Valencia this summer.
Valencia, who plies his trade for Mexican outfit Pachua, has been heavily linked with a big-money switch to Upton Park after scoring three times in this summer's World Cup.
According to Sky Sports News, the 25-year-old has inked a five-year contract in East London and has moved level with Andy Carroll as the Hammers' most expensive signing of all time.
The prospective deal would mark manager Sam Allardyce's fifth summer signing, having recruited Mauro Zarate, Cheikhou Kouyate, Aaron Creswell and Diego Poyet already during the off-season.
