The 17-year-old is a product of the Hadjuk Split academy and made his first team debut in May as he came off the bench to face NK Zagreb.

The forward is seen as a top-prospect for the future within the Croatia national set-up, having turned out eight times for the under-17 side.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is hoping to use his Croatian connections to bring in Magnajic, although he won’t be immediately brought into first team contention.

Reports claim that Serie A club Fiorentina are also keen to sign the youngster but it’s understood that Bilic will use his contacts to win the battle.
