West Ham United are thought to be keeping an eye on one of Barcelona’s misfits.
The 23-year-old has had a rather difficult time with the Catalan giants, having started just twice for the La Liga outfit.
The Spain international is believed to have wanted to have had more minutes at Barcelona, having spent two seasons on loan at Valencia and Alaves.
El Haddadi’s contract is set to expire at the end of the summer and has not yet signed a new deal, which has led to a number of clubs taking note.
West Ham are said to have to face competition from the likes of Olympique de Marseille, Schalke 04, AS Roma and Napoli.
West Ham are thought to be interested in adding some attacking personnel to their side and El Haddadi could be an excellent addition for Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
Rated at £10.8million per Transfermarkt, the forward’s current situation at Barcelona could see him available in the winter for a cut-price or in the summer on a free transfer.
However, with the number of clubs thought to hold an interest in him, West Ham could find it difficult to try and lure the 23-year-old to the Premier League.
