Tottenham are close to completing the signing of Dutch striker Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar.
The Mirror are reporting that Spurs are now in pole position after the highly-rated young forward rejected Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham because he has his eyes fixed on a move to White Hart Lane.
West Ham have been showing plenty of ambition in the transfer market, this time by meeting AZ's asking price of £16million, a figure which was also offered by the French champions.

Admittedly, it would have been difficult for Slaven Bilic to tempt him to Upton Park considering the Hammers can't offer him Champions League football, but the Croatian boss evidently deemed it worth a cheeky bid nonetheless.
However, it has proved to be in vain, as Janssen has made it clear he only wants to move to Spurs.
In fact, talks are only taking as long as they have because of a dispute over the player's fee.
Alkmaar are holding out for as high a profit as possible for the striker, who is being hailed as the next Ruud van Nistlerooy.
Spurs initially began talks with his representatives in the belief that he had a price tag of just £12million, but that has now been hiked up.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been employing his usual tactic of shopping around in a bid to get Alkmaar back on board with the deal, and it seems it has worked.
The Lilywhites have also been linked with River Plate's Lucas Alario and Roma's Antonio Sanabria, but it now looks as if Janssen will become their second signing of the summer after Victor Wanyama.
Mauricio Pochettino has been intent on signing a striker to boost his attacking options as a means of easing the pressure on beleaguered star Harry Kane.
