West ham attacker deal on verge of collapse due to £15m valuation - report
By Alex Taylor
West Ham are yet to offload Enner Valencia as clubs baulk at the Hammers £15million valuation of the player, according to reports.
The Express claims that potential suitors Lazio and Swansea have so far been unwilling to meet the club’s demands for the forward.
The report says Slaven Bilic’s side have already rejected an offer of £10million plus £3million in add-ons from Swansea as they believe they can still make a profit on the Ecuadorian star.
The versatile attacker has had two mixed seasons with West Ham since joining from Pachuca in 2014 for £12 million, scoring just 10 goals in a claret and blue shirt.

With Valencia set to leave, and Senegalese forward Diafra Sakho handing in a transfer request, manager Slaven Bilic is running out of striking options at the Olympic Stadium next season.
The player has just two years left on his current deal allowing the east London outfit to dictate transfer proceedings.
The Croatian manager has been linked with bringing in Robin van Persie and Carlos Bacca, after missing out on Michy Batshuayi, Carlos Tevez and Vincent Janssen.
