July 3 (Reuters) - FIFA are investigating a claim by Eintracht Frankfurt against West Ham United over the transfer of French striker Sebastien Haller, a spokesperson for soccer's world governing body said on Friday.

British media reported Frankfurt had lodged a complaint with FIFA claiming they had yet to receive 5.4 million pounds ($6.7 million) from West Ham as part of the deal that brought the 26-year-old to the London Stadium in 2019.

"We can confirm that we have received a claim from the German club Eintracht Frankfurt against the English club West Ham United," a FIFA spokesperson said in a statement.
