Key West Ham target Anthony Modeste has accepted a lucrative deal with Chinese club Tianjin Quanjian.
The French hotshot scored 25 goals in 34 outings this term, which has attracted that attention of a number of clubs.
Among them is West Ham, who are expected to reinforce their frontline this summer following a disappointing season in front of goal.
But it looks as though they should forget about landing Modeste, with mega-rich Quanjian seemingly on the verge of completing a deal.
According to German outlet Express, the 29-year-old has accepted a bumper three-year deal with an annual take-home value of around £9million.
There is still some hope for the Hammers, however, as Koln are yet to agree on a fee with the Chinese club having rejected their opening £21.75m bid.
