West Ham are reportedly monitoring Danish youngster Pione Sisto of FC Midtjylland along with Premier League rivals Everton and Manchester City.
All three English sides have apparently sent scouts to Denmark in order to keep track of the 20-year old in action for his current side in the Superliga.
According to reports from Danish news source Tipsbladet, Sisto impressed the scouts of all three teams in Midtjylland’s Europa League game against Club Brugge and it is understood that he could now be at the heart of a January bidding war.
Sisto was part of the winning side in this fixture as his team ran out 3-1 winners in Belgium; a game in which he scored. It has also been reported that PSG representatives were present at the match.
West Ham were actually interested in bringing Sisto to East London last summer, but the player was understood to have wanted to stay in Denmark and continue his development for another term. A £4.9m bid was put in place by The Hammers that was initially accepted by the club, only for the player to reject it due to the reason stated.
But attempts to get their man could be made even harder for West Ham with both Everton and City showing interest in Sisto now.
Despite being born in Uganda, Sisto received clearance from FIFA to represent Denmark in May this year; making his debut in September in a Euro 2016 Qualifier against Albania.
