West Ham are trying to hijack Fulham’s move for Greek striker Kostas Mitroglou, it is claimed.

The Olympiakos striker had looked set to move to Craven Cottage for a reported £12m, but reports suggest the Hammers have made a late move to try and snatch the forward from under the noses of their London Premier League rivals.

Despite having Andy Carroll playing again, Sam Allardyce is thought to be keen to bolster his forward options.
