Report: Hammers could snap up Bayern ace

West Ham could be given the opportunity to sign Joshua Zirkzee from Bayern Munich.

The striker is currently on loan at Anderlecht and has been in excellent form in Belgium, scoring 15 goals in 38 games in all competitions.

He has also laid on nine assists and it seems as though Bayern could now look to sell the 20-year-old at the end of the season, as his current contract is set to expire in 2023.

Zirkzee has previously been linked with a potential move to the Hammers, with boss David Moyes said to be keeping an eye on his development.

Now, though, Bild reports that Bayern could ask for as little as £4.1m to let him leave, given that he is currently well behind Robert Lewandowski in the pecking order.

With Bayern clearly willing to do business, and Zirkzee apparently not keen on returning to the Bundesliga, this could be a prime opportunity for West Ham to sign a new striker.
