The Hammers and Spurs have both received a boost in their pursuit of Lazio forward Keita Balde, after the 22-year-old took to his official Twitter account to express his frustrations at being left out of his side's Super Cup squad.
Slaven Bilic has brought plenty of impressive new arrivals to the London Stadium so far this summer, and with the likes of Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez amongst the recent recruits, whether they ramp up their interest in Keita Balde remains to be seen.
Mauricio Pochettino's side, on the other hand, is in desperate need of strengthening, especially in forward areas, with another option to Harry Kane an absolute necessity for the Lilywhites.
Both clubs might just have been given extra emphasis to go out and get their man, however.
The highly-rated 22-year-old took to his official Twitter account to dispute his side's claims that he was omitted from the Super Cup squad because of injury.
"The lack of a call-up for the Super Cup Final has profoundly hurt me. It is the first important match of the season, for which I had prepared and was ready for action. The decision made by the club, which evidently had nothing to do with purely sporting criteria, puts me in a psychologically uncomfortable position and right now I don't know how to evaluate the consequences of that."
It will be interesting to see now if either of the two London clubs make a move for the explosive Lazio man, following his latest comments.
