The Hammers are battling Borussia Dortmund for the signing of Spartak Moscow striker Jordan Larsson, according to Goal.
The Sweden international has been in excellent form for the Russian side this season and has scored 12 goals in 23 games, while also providing five assists.
He can play as a centre-forward or as an attacking midfielder and he has also won five caps for his country, scoring once.
Larsson is the son of the former Celtic and Manchester United star Henrik, and he moved to Spartak for just €4m (£3.4m) back in 2019.
Dortmund are on the lookout for a successor to Erling Haaland, who has been touted for a huge-money move this summer, so they may have something of an advantage if they receive a huge influx of cash.
The Irons, though, are in the market for a striker after failing to sign a forward in the January transfer market.
The focus has only been sharpened by the injury woes of Mikey Antonio, who limped out of Monday’s clash with Wolves.
