West Ham are among a string of clubs keen on signing AZ Alkmaar midfielder Rasmus Elm reports talkSPORT.
The 23-year-old Swedish international is the brother of former Fulham striker David, and has attracted interest from across Europe.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is keen to further strengthen his squad at Upton Park in January, and will move to sign the in-demand Elm when the transfer window reopens in January.
The player's agent Mark Mork revealed that West Ham could face a fight to land him when he told De Telegraaf:
"Several clubs in England, Germany and Italy are following him but it depends on many things.
"We have to analyse what is right for AZ and whether the player is comfortable."
With Lazio and Werder Bremen also reportedly keen to land the Eredivisie star, West Ham will have a challenge on their hands to bring him to the Npower Championship.
