West Ham have signed Basel striker Albian Ajeti on an initial four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The Switzerland international scored 15 goals in 35 games for Basel last season and has seven caps for his country.
Previously linked with a move to Championship side West Brom, Ajeti's contract includes an option to extend for another two seasons.
On the transfer, Ajeti said: "I'm very excited to be here. It is a pleasure for me to be here, at this big club.
"Once I felt West Ham's interest, I didn't have to think twice about signing for such a big, traditional club in the Premier League. This is a big day for me and my family."
The forward becomes the sixth player to join the Hammers this summer, following Goncalo Cardoso, Pablo Fornals, Sebastien Haller, David Martin and Roberto.
