Blackburn Rovers star Bradley Dack is on West Ham’s radar this January, according to The Sun.
West Ham and Crystal Palace are lining up £20m swoops for Dack, who has been impressing in the Championship.
Blackburn face a battle to keep the attacking midfielder at Ewood Park with Tottenham Hotspur also keen.
Who is Bradley Dack?
Dack led Blackburn to promotion last season, scoring 18 goals in 42 games from midfield in League One.
This season, he has continued his fine form in front of goal, netting 11 times in all competitions, including nine goals in the league.
Dack has also contributed with three assists for team-mates to guide Blackburn into the top half of the Championship.
The 24-year-old’s form has attracted attention from the Premier League and West Ham could swoop.
Crystal Palace, who have had issues in front of goal, might also submit a bid for Dack in the January window.
Where would he fit in?
With Andriy Yarmolenko out for most of the season and Manuel Lanzini still sidelined, Manuel Pellegrini is searching for an attacking midfielder this January.
Dack would still have to compete with the likes of Felipe Anderson, Grady Diangana, Robert Snodgrass, Michail Antonio and Lucas Perez, though.
The ex-Gillingham midfielder is versatile and able to play out wide or in his preferred central role.
West Ham have previously enjoyed success in bringing players up from the Championship, although £20m is a hefty price for someone who has only just moved up from the third tier.
