Sunderland and Stoke City are vying with West Ham United for the signature of Roberto Pereyra, who has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur, reports the Sun.

West Ham are said to be keen on Pereyra - a winger-cum-attacking-midfielder currently of Juventus - despite reportedly agreeing a £12 million deal for Besiktas wide man Gokhan Tore.

But the Hammers' interest is now being rivalled by Premier League rivals Sunderland and Stoke, according to the Sun.

The report claims Pereyra is looking to quit Juve over a lack of opportunities - though the presence of Dimitri Payet, Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini at the Olympic Stadium suggests a move there would be a case of out of the pan and into the fire for the 25-year-old.

That would not be a problem with either Sunderland or Stoke, however, as doubts surround the futures of Mackems wingers Sebastian Larsson and Jeremain Lens, while Potters star Marko Arnautovic, who has a year left on his contract, is stalling on a new deal.

Pereyra, who was linked with a move to Spurs by Tuttosport last month, signed for Juventus on a permanent basis last summer, having impressed on loan from Udinese.

The 10-cap Argentina international is a former teammate of Lanzini at River Plate.
