Leeds have entered the race to sign West Brom star Matheus Pereira, who is seen as an alternative to Jesse Lingard for the Irons.
We have reported that the Hammers are interested in snapping up the playmaker, who impressed in a relegated Baggies side last season.
The Hammers and the Baggies have held talks over a deal for Pereira but they have not gone very far.
And now, ESPN Brasil reports that Marcelo Bielsa’s side also hold an interest in signing the WBA ace.
Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are both said to be interested too, as are German club Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Baggies value him at around £30m and he is said to be interested in moving to Leeds, though they have yet to make a bid.
We know that there has been dialogue between the Hammers and West Brom so if there is to be a deal done for Pereira, the Irons may well need to hurry it up a tad!
