West Ham are interested in signing Real Salt Lake forward Jefferson Savarino in the summer transfer window, according to Sky Sports.
The 22-year-old has impressed for the MLS side, also winning nine caps for Venezuela.
Newcastle United are also believed to be watching Savarino closely, with his ability seen as capable of thriving in the Premier League.
Both West Ham and Newcastle will have scouts watching him in action on Wednesday, when Venezuela face the daunting task of taking on hosts Brazil at Copa America.
Capable of playing on either wing, Savarino would add firepower to West Ham’s attack, also bringing depth to that area of the pitch.
The young wide man has scored three goals and registered two assists in the MLS this year and has been at Real Salt Lake since 2017.
He joined from Venezuelan side Zulia, where he spent his youth career and eventually made the grade.
