It looks like West Ham have acted early on their interest for the young forward with Sky Sources reporting that the London Club have tabled a bid in the region of £27m, which is suggested to be £2m more than another bid they received for the player from another Premier League Club.

However, recent reports from The Chronical have confirmed that Newcastle United have submitted a bid for the player and have also confirmed that it is below Nice’s asking price which suggests that they are the club to have tabled a £25m bid.

It is believed that the French club are keen to hold out on their asking price of £30m with Lyon entitled to 20% of the sell on fee due to a clause in his contract when he joined Nice from Lyon in August 2014.
