West Ham United are chasing Real Madrid striker Jese Rodriguez.
AS says Real are keen to send Jese away on-loan next season, with little prospect of first team football.
Jese has fully recovered from knee surgery, but has struggled to make an impact since his return to full fitness before Christmas.
West Ham have made tentative contact with Real and while Jese would prefer to stay in Spain, he will consider offers from abroad.
Real coach Carlo Ancelotti has stated they would have won the Liga title last season if not for Jese’s injury setback.
