Haller’s performances in the Bundesliga last season saw him attract a number of interested suitors toward the end of the campaign, and despite West Ham’s interest, teammate Russ doesn’t believe Haller will join the club. In a recent interview with Bild, Russ said:

“West Ham? No, he will not do that.”

Bild back up this claim by asserting that Haller wouldn’t likely leave a club with Europa League football next season for one that finished tenth in the Premier League as he believes this to be a step down.

However, they do believe that the Hammers could get their way through financial incentives, with Haller one of the lower earners at Frankfurt.
