Benjamin Tetteh could reportedly be on his way to the Premier League with Everton, West Ham United and AFC Bournemouth interested.

At the age of just 21, Benjamin Tetteh has already established himself as the star man of Sparta Prague.

With nine goals in 15 games for the Czech side, and a style of play which has led some to label him the ‘new Didier Drogba’, The Mail claimed on Friday that Tetteh had attracted interest from a number of unnamed Premier League sides.


Now, however, Football Ghana have thrown three clubs into the frame; West Ham United, Everton and Bournemouth.

It is well documented that Everton need a new centre-forward with Richarlison more of a winger while Oumar Niasse and Cenk Tosun are expected to depart. West Ham, meanwhile, could be forced into the market with Marko Arnautovic heavily linked with a move to China.

And Bournemouth arguably lack depth up front behind 10-goal top scorer Callum Wilson.

Football Ghana add that Sparta Prague could let Tetteh leave this month but they want at least £10.5 million. Turkish Super Lig champions Galatasaray, who are in dire need of a centre-forward to replace the departed Bafetimbi Gomis, have seen a £7 million bid rejected.
