Record reported in their print edition (30 November, page 4) that Nunez has a release clause that stands at £130million, but no club will be willing to part with such a hefty fee, and Benfica could be forced to lower their demands if suitors come calling.
The Hammers need quality attacking reinforcements in January, and after seeing Michail Antonio struggle to find the back of the net in recent games, David Moyes will know landing another striker for the second half of the campaign is very important to bolster his side’s top-four chances.
Nunez has scored 11 goals and weighed in with two assists in 16 games across all competitions for the Portuguese giants so far this season.
He bagged 11 goals and 10 assists across the league and Europe last term, and he could be a solid addition for West Ham.
Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez revealed back in October [via Sport] that he once recommended Nunez to Barcelona, and the Hammers should be looking at getting a deal done.
