West Ham have submitted a €10m bid as they attempt to land Olympiacos midfielder Kostas Fortounis this summer.

According to Radio Sport 24, via The Mirror, West Ham are keen to bring Fortounis to England and have made their first official offer.

The report claims that West Ham sporting director Mario Husillos has picked Fortounis out as a player who can come to the London Stadium and improve Manuel Pellegrini’s midfield options.

Fortounis has caught the eye in Greece this season with his impressive performances in midfield, scoring 12 goals in 28 games for the Greek giants.

West Ham could, however, face competition from fellow Premier League side Norwich. The Canaries were touted with interest in Fortounis earlier this year and could rival West Ham to his signature.

Fortounis joined Olympiacos in 2014 and has made 196 appearances for the club to date, including 42 European outings – in the Champions League and Europa League.
