West Ham have joined the race to land England striker Callum Wilson, who wants to leave relegated Bournemouth to save his international career.
Wilson, 28, who has won four caps has spent the last six years at Bournemouth, who were relegated to the Championship last weekend.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is looking to take the weight off the shoulders Harry Kane and Wilson, who scored nine goals for the Cherries last season, is also on his wanted list.
Hammers boss David Moyes is set to launch a buy British campaign this summer especially with Wilson available for a bargain £10million.
Moyes is keen on QPR’s Eberechi Eze and Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White to bolster the squad who struggled against dropping out of the Premier League.

The Hammers need to improve in front of goal especially as £45million record signing Sebastien Haller scored just seven times since his move from Eintracht Frankfurt 12 months ago.
Moyes is considering dumping the Frenchman, who has been linked with Monaco – now being managed by his former Frankfurt boss Niko Kovac.
The Hammers have also been linked with a move for Lewisham-born Nigerian international Josh Maja, who is playing for Bordeaux.
Moyes was axed by West Ham after guiding them to safety two seasons ago but expects to have the chance to build on his work after returning to repeat the trick this term.

“Last time I only had a short contract, so the owners were entitled to do what they wanted. This time I am under contract,” said Moyes after the 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
“I can see shoots of improvement,” he added. “The owners can see shoots of improvement too.
“I think they understand the way we would like to go and the ideas we have got.”
