WEST HAM is reviewing Monday’s final day bid for Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.
The Hammer had an offer of £37m plus add-ons turned down by the Portuguese outfit for the 22-year-old.
SunSport understands Benfica still wants to do business and the previous deal is not far from what they believe is an appropriate fee.
West Ham are desperate to bring in a reserve striker to provide support for top scorer Michail Antonio.
Fighting both in the Europa League and the race for the top four, the West Ham chiefs understand that this move could cost their season a slam.
But they are running out of time and will need to submit a second bid in the next few hours to stand any chance.
Uruguayan striker Nunez has scored 15 goals in 16 league games so far, as well as 20 goals in 25 games in all competitions.
West Ham have also been linked with Liverpool’s Divock Origi.

But they have a potential battle on their hands if they land him before the window slams TONIGHT.
The Belgium international has had few chances at Anfield this season and has been told he could leave if a suitable offer is received following interest at home and abroad.
Irons fans are also waiting to hear about a possible deal for Croatia international Duje Caleta-Car following reports of a £21m move from Marseille.
