West Ham are being linked with another move for Koln's in-form striker Anthony Modeste.
The Hammers made discrete enquiries into the French forward's availability last summer after he hit 18 goals for the Bundesliga side during a busy 2015/16 season.
And according to SportBild, the Hammers have made a fresh enquiry into Modeste's availability after he continued that rich vein of form this season; thus far he has hit the net 25 times in just 32 appearances (Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal).
However the German club are unlikely to let the striker - who celebrated his 29th birthday earlier this week - leave for less than €30million, according to the source.
* In other transfer news West Ham are one of up to TEN clubs said to be chasing Hamburg forward Bobby Wood, who is said to be available for €12million. Leicester City and Bayer Leverkusen are two of the other clubs said to be vying for the USA international's signature, according to SportBild.
* Meanwhile triallist Alexander Alp has returned to current club AIK Solna after failing to secure a contract. The highly-rated 16-year-old has initially impressed Hammers scouts but has now returned to Sweden.
