West Ham are said to have had a bid of 3million for Norwich striker grant Holt rejected.

And manager Sam Allardyce has also been linked with a move for Real Madrid youngster Joselu.

Holt, who enjoyed a fantastic season for the Canaries last year, scoring 15 goals in the process, informed his current club last week that he was hoping to leave the club as a result of personal differences.

And that alerted West Ham who are reported to have placed a 3million bid for his services - an opening offer that is said to have been dismissed.

Meanwhile the Daily Mail report today that West Ham are taking a close look at Castilla's 22-year-old Joselu, a German-born forward who joined Real Madrid's B-team in 2009.

Joselu - who has lived in Spain since the age of four - began his professional career with Celta in 2008 before being snapped up by Madrid a year later.

Immediately loaned back to Celta for the 2009-10 campaign, the 6'3" striker - who has made just two appearances (one as a substitute) for Real has represented Spain at under 19, under 20 and under 21 level.
