West Ham have been linked with a summer move for Bournemouth winger Max Gradel but face a battle with Inter Milan to land him.
The report claims that West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is interested in the 28-year-old Ivorian as he builds a squad which will, hopefully, be in European action next season.
The Hammers have not given up hopes of a Champions League spot as they currently sit in sixth with 59 points, one behind fifth placed Manchester United, and they will need additions to the squad next season.
According to reports Inter are set to offer Â£11.8m for the winger who has missed most of the season with a knee injury and only featured a dozen times, scoring once and providing two assists, whether the Hammers would see that sort of fee as value for money remains to be seen.
Bournemouth landed the former Leeds star from St Etienne last summer for a fee of around Â£7m and he signed a four-year deal at the club so the Cherries have no need to sell him, unless an offer comes in which is too good to refuse.
