Last week Jack Sullivan, the son of co-chairman David, revealed the player was weighing up a move to east London, however, other clubs including Champions League trio Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, are now said to be keen.

As far as said 'other targets' are concerned, things do not appear to be going smoothly.

Calcio News reports that Arsenal have entered the running for Juventus' striker Mario Mandzukic, who was linked with the Hammers earlier this week.

Hopefully, Slaven Bilic's relationship with the 30-year-old will pay off - the former Croatia boss gave him his international debut.

Meanwhile, another north London club are keen to muscle in on United's business, with Spurs rekindling their interest in Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder, according to Canal +.

L'Equipe reported earlier this week that Arsenal were also keen on the 25-year-old, who can leave for £8.4 million. 

A new striker may not have arrived but Enner Valenica could still be on his way out, with Turkish outlet Haberler claiming Galatasaray have agreed a £12 million deal for the Ecuadorian.

Should the move go ahead, Valencia would likely face failed Hammers target Atiba Hutchinson in Turkey this season.

According to Kral Spor, the Canadian turned down an approach to reunite with former boss Bilic in east London following his chairman's intervention - leading to a €500,000 annual wage increase.
