West Ham eyes 10-goal Fortuna Dusseldorf winger Benito Raman

With Fortuna Dusseldorf in desperate need of cash, they may be forced to sell their prized asset.

According to Sport Bild, West Ham have targeted 24-year-old winger Benito Raman.

The Belgian arrived in Germany from native side Standard Liège over the summer for just €1.5m and has been an absolute star for the 10th-place Bundesliga side, who have enjoyed an unexpected second-half turnaround this season.

Raman has scored 10 goals and has contributed four assists in 26 games in all competitions this season and is a capped Belgium U-21 international.

According to the report, West Ham, in addition to several other English clubs, want to bring in Raman for about €15m this season.

Raman is under contract with the Bundesliga club until 2022.
