Previously linked with the 22-year-old, the Hammers are believed to be competing with German giants Bayer Leverkusen for the striker.
The interest comes as Irons’ boss David Moyes continues the search for additional attaching options to bolster the department having lost Sebastien Haller in January.

The Italian also mentions a new deal on the table from the Gunners as well as interest from newly-promoted Watford, albeit the main two protagonists are the Hammers and Leverkusen.
Since then the London-born starlet has found chances hard to come by and has only managed 13 goals in 65 outings for the club.
READ WEST HAM VERDICT
Valued at £14.4million and entering the final 12 months of a deal at the Emirates Stadium (Transfermarkt), the Hammers could land themselves incredible value for money with Nketiah.
An unresolved contract situation should reduce a previous asking price of £19million and could play directly into West Ham’s favour.
Clearly a player with plenty of potential, Moyes would surely relish the opportunity of giving the young Englishman another chance to shine having stalled somewhat.
