West Ham are looking to cash in on on-loan Middlesbrough striker Jordan Hugill, according to recent reports.
The Hemlington-born frontman had failed to break into the West Ham side following his £10million move from Preston North End in January, playing just 22 minutes in total.
He subsequently moved to his hometown club in the summer, and now a £6million move is being talked up.
According a recent report from a West Ham source, Boro have a purchase clause of between £6-7million in his current loan deal.
The Hammers are keen to sell Hugill but acknowledge it would be difficult to recoup the money they spent on him.
Hugill, who missed pre-season through injury, has started to hit good form in recent weeks, scoring three goals in three games.
The forward appears to be above record signing Britt Assombalonga in the pecking order and Boro could trigger the option to make the move permanent.
