West Ham are interested in signing forward Joshua King from Bournemouth.
The main transfer window may have closed, but a domestic window between Premier League and EFL clubs remains open until October 16 – dubbed Deadline Day Two.
Bournemouth have already lost several of their best players since suffering relegation from the Premier League last season. Nathan Ake joined Manchester City, Aaron Ramsdale returned to Sheffield United and Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser moved to Newcastle.
King could be another big name to depart and West Ham are thought to be one of several clubs interested in his signature. It is thought Bournemouth would want around £18m for the Norway international.
The 28-year-old scored six times for Bournemouth in the Premier League last season and could have joined former club Manchester United on Deadline Day in January.
United made an initial bid of £20m for King, which was rejected by Bournemouth, but then failed to return with a second offer.
United were linked with a number of different strikers during the January window and ended up bringing in Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua.
