West Ham face a battle with Manchester City for Club Brugge striker Charles De Ketelaere according to a report from Calciomercato.
And if Man City go all out for the 20-year-old, the Hammers may well have their work cut-out.
David Moyes wants to bring the talented Belgian starlet to the London Stadium in January according to Calciomercato.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola could be set to make it mission impossible for West Ham, however.
If De Ketelaere has a straight choice between the London Stadium and The Etihad, even the most ardent of Hammers fans would agree that the answer is an obvious one.
Manchester City join West Ham in Charles De Ketelaere race
Calciomercato reckon that City are keen to sign the 20-year-old forward.
And that is an obvious blow for the Hammers.
De Ketelaere is such an incredible talent and would be a truly sensational addition to David Moyes’s ranks.
The Belgian ace is comfortable playing anywhere along the front-line. He has exceptional technique and is very quick along the ground.
The youngster was described as an attacker with ‘fantastic trickery’ by Eurosport.
The two-capped Belgium international has been in fine form for Club Brugge so far this season, bagging four goals and three assists in 13 games (Transfermarkt).
The 20-year-old is available for around £21 million according to a report from Goal.
That would represent superb value for West Ham.
With Manchester City now sniffing around, however, it could well be mission impossible for the Hammers.
