Tottenham and West Ham have both made attempts to sign Ghanian defender Samuel Inkoom, according to the player himself.
The 22-year-old currently plies his trade with Ukrainian side Dnipro - a team he only joined in January - but a number of imperious displays have seen him attract attention from England.
And now, the Ghana international claims, Spurs and West Ham are expressed their desire to sign him this summer - although he is happy to remain in the Ukraine.
"Yes, it's true, Tottenham and West Ham and other English sides want to sign me, but at the moment I'm a player of Dnipro and will leave my agent to sort that out for me," the full-back told MTNfootball.
"I will be going back to Ukraine and then I will decide what to do next."
It is unlikely the mutual pursuit of Inkoom will be the only time Spurs and West Ham cross swords in the transfer market, with White Hart Lane still the most likely destination for Hammers talisman Scott Parker.
The 30-year-old England midfielder is expected to leave Upton Park this summer after West Ham's relegation to the Npower Championship, and Harry Redknapp remains keen to secure his services.
