West Ham have reportedly joined fellow English clubs West Brom and Watford in the race to sign Montpellier striker Steve Mounie.
Despite Montpellier having struggled in the French Ligue 1 last season, Mounie starred and scored 14 goals for his side.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is determined on bringing new strikers to his club ahead of next season following inconsistency and injury problems to Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll this past season.
Due to his performances from last term, whichever club ends up signing Mounie will have to fork out a sum of money believed to be in the region of £13 million.
The likelihood of Mounie leaving Montpellier is very high as he will want to play for a club that has bigger ambitions. The 22-year-old Benin international may also feel that the time is right to test himself against some of the best in the game on a regular basis in the Premiership.
