Following initial interest, West Ham are moving fast to land 19-year-old forward Ibrahim Osman from Nordsjaelland.
As reported by Ben Jacobs, The Hammers have had an initial bid of €16m plus add-ons rejected but further added that there are discussions ongoing around the region of €18m-€19m, excluding add-ons.
Osman has provided four goals and five assists in the 29 games he has featured in this season, including the two goals he scored in the Europa Conference League.
The Ghanaian, who is capable of being deployed anywhere in attack could be a massive boost for West Ham for the second half of the season as they look to secure European football next season, and could also be a long-term replacement for the already aging Michail Antonio.
West Ham still face competition from Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace, who are also interested in him.
