West Ham looks to miss out on another target, with Wolves closing in on a deal for the Bristol City starlet and England Under 20 international Alex Scott.
Wolves have seen two bids turned down by the Robins – with the latest offer believed to be worth around £ 20 million and now believe of £25m will secure the player’s signature. 6foot2 understands that West Ham is interested in Alex Scott and has been tracking him for some time but they did not submit a bid.
It was the same situation with the former Coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres who West Ham also had a strong interest according to 6foot2 sources.
Last week Sporting Lisbon signed the Hammers target for £ 20 million, Gyokeres scored 23 goals in 50 appearances last term to help Coventry to the Championship play-off final, where they lost to Luton on penalties. Coventry did not officially disclose the transfer fee received for the 25-year-old – but a percentage of the fee will be due to his former club, Brighton.
