West Ham United are joining Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa in the race to sign Celta Vigo striker Jorgen Strand Larsen, according to a report in Spanish outlet Faro De Vigo.

The 24-year-old Norwegian has been attracting interest from across Europe following his impressive performances in La Liga. Wolves are said to be the frontrunners for his signature, but West Ham and Aston Villa are now serious contenders.

West Ham are in need of a new striker what with uncertainty surrounding Antonio’s future and Danny Ings’ likely departure to Southampton. Strand Larsen is seen as a potential replacement , and his young age suggests that he could develop into a top striker in the Premier League.

The main obstacle for any potential suitor is likely to be the Celta Vigo’s asking price of £25 million. West Ham will need to negotiate a transfer fee that is agreeable to both the club and the player.

West Ham’s interest in Strand Larsen, along with their links to Tammy Abraham, suggests that they are looking to sign a no -nonsensense traditional target man this summer.

The competition for Strand Larsen’s signature is heating up, and West Ham will need to act quickly if they want to secure the promising Norwegian striker.
