West Ham are joining the battle for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

The London Evening Standard says the Hammers are prioritising attacking players this summer and are also weighing up a move for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi and retain an interest in Sunderland veteran Jermain Defoe, who they tried to sign for £6million in January.

Nigeria international Iheanacho is under contract until 2021 but City are prepared to listen to offers of around £20m, to help finance their spending plans for the summer.

He has scored four goals and made three assists, despite completing only one full game.
