London outfit West Ham United are believed to be pondering a swoop for Real Madrid's Jese Rodriguez on loan, according to Spanish daily AS.

The 20-year-old wonderkid from Las Palmas was recently awarded with a new contract that will keep him at the Santiago Bernabeu until the summer of 2017.


But with Jese just playing in seven competitive games for Los Blancos' this season so far, West Ham believes they have a fighting chance of convincing the player to make a temporary move to Upton Park.

West Ham find themselves struggling in the attacking department with main forward man Andy Carroll out with injury. Indeed, four of the Hammers' top five goalscorers this season are midfielders.


With the London-based club left without much teeth to show up front, they see themselves wandering close of the drop zone, with them in 16th place after earning just 10 points in 11 games.

Jese started his professional football career with Real Madrid in 2011, primarily making a name for himself in the club's "B" team, Real Madrid Castilla, before he was given more chances of first-team football this season, making his Champions League debut on 2nd October in a 4-0 win against FC Copenhagen.
