West Ham are exploring a number of options and one of them, according to AS, is Jimenez.

The 32-year-old is currently contracted to Espanyol but he spent the whole of last season on loan at Malaga.


The Spanish club had the option to sign the goalkeeper permanently, however they have decided to pursue other targets.

Jimenez, though, is still looking to leave Espanyol and he has been told he can go for around £1.5m.

Jimenez enjoyed a spell with Olympiacos, winning the league three times and the Greek Cup once
