Brazilian side Corinthians have claimed that a deal to sell defender Fabian Balbuena to West Ham has been agreed.
Corinthians released a statement on Saturday saying the Hammers met their valuation for the Paraguay international, who will now travel to London to carry out his medical.
Balbuena has made 136 appearances for Corinthians, scoring 11 goals in his three years at the Sao Paulo-based club, and helped them win the Brazilian championship in 2017.
Their statement concluded: "The board thanks the services provided and wishes him luck for the new journey."
West Ham have made three summer signings - Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski - since Manuel Pellegrini was appointed as the club's new manager in May.
