West Ham are seeking to strengthen their side in January but may face difficulties in the market, with reports suggesting a huge fight will emerge for the services of one striker.

The Birmingham Mail report that Championship leaders Wolves are the latest club to express an interest in 19-year-old Leicester City forward Josh Eppiah, who is regarded as one of the biggest talents at the club but is yet to make his first-team debut.

Interest in the teenager is thought to be high, with Everton pushing for a deal after being recommended the player by assistant boss Craig Shakespeare, and West Ham are also interested in his services- along with the likes of RB Leipzig, Bournemouth and Stoke City eyeing a move.

A number of sides from the Championship are also keen and Leicester may elect to seek a loan deal in the New Year, handing Eppiah the first-team football he craves whilst not losing his services on a permanent basis.

It may be difficult for West Ham to persuade the striker to make a move to the London Stadium as they’d be unable to offer first-team football, particularly with their own highly-rated man, Toni Martinez, still waiting for his chance.
