West Ham United reportedly plan to hijack Fulham's move for Kostas Mitroglou.

West Ham United are reportedly planning to hijack Fulham's move for Olympiacos striker Kostas Mitroglou.

The Greek forward underwent a medical with the Cottagers on Thursday ahead of a £12m switch to Craven Cottage.

However, according to The Mirror, the Hammers are plotting a transfer deadline-day gazumping of their Premier League rivals.

The Irons have been looking to add a striker to their ranks all summer, and the 25-year-old Mitroglou is on their radar, despite his advanced discussions with Fulham.
