West Ham fear they won't get a deal for Scott Hogan done by tomorrow's deadline
Hogan has been linked with a move to the London Stadium but Brentford have dug their heels in and have been demanding £15m.
And Express Sport understands the Hammers are no longer confident of securing the deal tomorrow.
West Ham pocketed £25m from the sale of Dimitri Payet and have already spent around £10m on Robert Snodgrass and £8 on Jose Fonte.
Dimitri Payet joined Marseille for £25million
Robert Snodgrass joined West Ham from Hull this month
They will continue to look at their options up to the deadline but feel Hogan is out of reach.
Meanwhile the club remain open to Reece Oxford going out on loan but are yet to receive a concrete offer.
