The battle for Greek goal machine Kostas Mitroglou has taken a dramatic twist, with West Ham now becoming favourites to sign him.

Reports in the Mirror claim that despite Fulham having agreed a fee with the striker's club, Olympiakos, West Ham are now throwing themselves into the mix.

This will be a bitter blow for Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen who has actively been on the hunt for a striker in this window, especially with the possibility of Dimitar Berbatov leaving the club.

Despite the Cottagers having their own striker problems during the window so to do the Hammers. Long standing target Lacina Traore opted for Everton rather than Sam Allardyce's team, joining the Toffees from Monaco for the remainder of the season.

It would appear then that Mitroglou is the order of the day. He has fired his side to the top of the Greek Super League and to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will face Manchester United.

The fee is rumoured to be around £12million, but this could rise even higher as the need for a striker between these relegation rivals becomes desperate. Expect this story to change hands throughout deadline day.
