West Ham reject £5m bid for striker Jordan Hugill from Norwich City despite Hammers boss David Moyes seeking funds for summer recruits
- Norwich are conducting a squad overhaul ahead of their Championship return
- Hugill scored 15 goals at QPR last term after just three games for the Hammers
- West Ham manager Moyes needs to sell players before he can buy this summer
West Ham have rebuffed an opening offer from Norwich City for striker Jordan Hugill but remain in talks.
The Championship side are understood to have offered £3million with a further £2m in add-ons for the 28-year-old who cost West Ham £10m in 2018.
He made just three substitute appearances for the Hammers in the Premier League before loaned back out to clubs in the Championship, where he is a proven performer.
Norwich City are targeting the signing of striker Jordan Hugill from West Ham this summer
Hugill has returned to the second-tier for the last two seasons, spending a year at Middlesbrough and then the recently-finished season on loan at QPR, ending a successful campaign with 15 goals in 41 appearances.
The Englishman has two years left on his contract on around £35,000 a week.
Hugill has interest from other Championship clubs but wages have been a stumbling block.
Manager David Moyes needs to sell players before he can buy and they will listen to offers for the likes of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini, Fabian Balbuena, Ryan Fredericks, Arthur Masuaku and Jack Wilshere.
