West Ham are reportedly interested in Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk.

The 25-year-old has scored 28 times in 47 appearances for the Brussels side this season, to alert a number of clubs across Europe.

The Polish international has scored  20 of those  in the Belgian league to push his club to the brink of the title. He was a member of the Anderlecht’s Europa League quarter-final team which was beaten by Manchester United.

Teodorczyk has a contract at Anderlecht until 2020 n is likely to cost a minimum of £25 million as the Hammers continue their relentless hunt for a top front man.

The Hammers have a keeper, striker and a right-back as their priorities for the summer and have also looked at relegated Middlesbrough hitman Alvaro Negredo but are unlikely to move for a front man with a one on four goal rate.

The Hammers continue to retain an interest also in in Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi, who will leave Chelsea at the end of the season.

    Just one striker, we need two at least even if we decide to keep Calleri and Fletcher. Sakho and Carroll need to be moved on.

  • Carrerageorge says:

    Is it really fact that Bats is leaving Chelsea t the end of the season?
    Has he announced a transfer request or the club listed him for sale?
