West Ham are among the clubs interested in Sparta Prague striker Benjamin Tetteh, according to reports.
Football Ghana names West Ham as one of the many Premier League clubs interested in signing Tetteh. Bournemouth and Everton have also been credited with an interest.
And in a separate report, Wolverhampton Wanderers are expected to swoop for Tetteh. According to The Daily Mail, Wolves have opened talks about the possibility of an £11m swoop for the 6ft 4in striker.
Galatasaray were rebuffed in their attempts to land the 21-year-old last week with a £7m bid as Sparta Prague rate him at £11m.
West Ham’s striker situation
West Ham could find themselves in the market for a new striker this week with Marko Arnautovic heavily linked with an exit.
According to various reports, Arnautovic is keen on a move to China. The Times report that Shanghai SIPG will launch a £45m bid for the 29-year-old to test West Ham’s resolve.
With Javier Hernandez currently sidelined and given Andy Carroll’s injury past, Manuel Pellegrini may be forced into action this January.
Who is Benjamin Tetteh?
Tetteh might be seen as a wildcard signing this January if the Hammers are convinced he is worth the £11m outlay.
The Ghana under-20 striker has been in impressive form for Sparta Prague this season, netting nine goals in 17 games for the Czech Republic top division side.
Tetteh previously played for Standard Liege, as well as having loan spells with FC Slovacko and Bohemians 1905. And his style of play has been compared to Didier Drogba, according to The Daily Mail.
