According to a report from 90 Min, West Ham are interested in signing Real Madrid hitman Luka Jovic this summer. Newcastle allegedly want to sign the talented young striker as well.

The Serbia international joined Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019 for around £55 million (AS).
At the same time, Sebastien Haller left the Bundesliga club for the Hammers for around £45 million (BBC).
The duo forged a wonderful partnership during their time together in Frankfurt last season.
In 89 combined appearances, Jovic and Haller racked up a very impressive 47 goals and 19 assists between them.
The Frenchman and the Serbian clearly have a wonderful understanding of the way in which each other play.
And if David Moyes somehow manages to bring Jovic to West Ham, it would be an absolutely sensational move from the Scot.
Sure, the 22-year-old has struggled at Madrid this season. And so has Haller at the London Stadium.
The Serb has scored just two goals in 24 games for the Spanish giants so far this season (Transfermarkt).
In truth, however, he hasn’t really been given enough chances to shine, with just eight of those appearances having been starts.
And he might just be able to rediscover his best form if played alongside Haller at West Ham.
Considering the current climate, Hammers boss David Moyes will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment this summer.
So the chances of West Ham spending big on a potential future star are slim to say the least.
Who knows though? Stranger things have happened. Perhaps David Sullivan will spring a nice little surprise this summer.
And if the Hammers do manage to snare Jovic this summer, they will be an incredibly potent threat next season.
