Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a new striker to the London Stadium this summer.
And although it’s not as much of a pressing issue for Jose Mourinho, Spurs will be looking to do the same.
West Ham need to replace Sebastien Haller whilst Tottenham need to provide more adequate competition for Harry Kane.
And La Repubblica claims that both London clubs could battle it out for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic at the end of the season.
West Ham and Tottenham to fight for Dusan Vlahovic
The 21-year-old is a really exciting talent.
The Serbia international has scored 12 goals in 26 Serie A games for Fiorentina this season (Transfermarkt).
Back in 2016, Vlahovic was scouted by Juventus with the Italian club’s scouts branding him as ‘the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ (The Sun).
Standing at 6ft 2in tall, the Fiorentina ace certainly has similar physical attributes to Zlatan.
And he has plenty of years left ahead of him to improve every further still and develop into a truly top class striker.
According to Roma Press, Fiorentina value the Serbian at around €30 million (£25 million).
That seems like decent value considering his unquestionable talent. And in truth, it could end up looking like an absolute steal.
Both West Ham and Tottenham should be able to afford that kind of fee in the summer.
Whether he ends up in east or north London next season, however, remains to be seen.
