West Ham United have made an ambitious move to sign youngster Ante Coric, according to Croatian daily newspaper Vecernji List.

The youngster is highly rated in Croatia and is the only teenager named in their squad for Euro 2016 this summer.

He was in impressive form last season, scoring five goals and bagging six assists, and that form has caught the eye of several European sides.

It appears that West Ham are one of them as they have launched an ambitious £10m bid for his services according to Vecernji List.

As far as they are concerned, the youngster could be tempted into the move as he knows that the Hammers are willing to give youngsters a chance in the first-team.

Slaven Bilic’s side are not only the only Premier League team keen on him though, with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur both having been credited with an interest.

Sportske Novoski claimed two weeks ago that Jurgen Klopp had personally called Coric to try to convince him to move to Anfield, while Tuttomercatoweb have suggested a move to Spurs was close.
