West Ham facing fierce competition for Bournemouth striker and PSG starlet

West Ham, Inter and Olympiakos are all interested in Bournemouth winger Max Gradel and are willing to pay his £10 million asking price, according to The Daily Mail.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Cherries only last summer from French side Saint-Etienne, as they paid £7 million for his services. Gradel provided only one goal and two assists in his first Premier League season, as a cruciate ligament injury ruled him out for six months.

However, the 28-year-old has impressed since his return to action for the Cherries and is now wanted by at least three clubs, with West Ham being one of them. The Hammers now need to battle Serie A giants Inter and Greek champions Olympiakos for his services, with a bid of £10 million being prepared.

Meanwhile, West Ham, Liverpool, Manchester City, Southampton, and Stoke City are all battling it out for Paris Saint-Germain starlet Fode Ballo Toure.

According to Foot Mercato (via talkSPORT), the 19-year-old French left-back has impressed with the Ligue 1 champions’ youth teams. Consequently five Premier League clubs are now showing interest before Toure is promoted to PSG’s senior team.
