Update: He neglect Tottenham and Chelsea bid as French player want to join West Ham

Elye Wahi “wants to go to West Ham” despite a bid from Chelsea and his “file will accelerate in the coming days”, according to Foot Mercato.

The French outlet reported on their website in the early hours of 16 August that the Hammers are now the “primary objective” of the young French forward, 20, after a €27million [£23m] bid to Montpellier from Stamford Bridge was rejected this summer and with Tottenham, PSG and Frankfurt all interested.

West Ham are yet to make an official bid for Wahi, who Foot Mercato previously reported (8 May) had an asking price of at least €40m [£34m] this summer.

The Irons need help up front after selling Gianluca Scamacca to Atalanta for over £27m and with Michail Antonio heavily linked with an exit of his own.

Door open

It sounds like half the job is already done if West Ham are ready to pick the ball up and run with it in the final fortnight of the transfer window.
