According to Calciomercato, West Ham have submitted a bid to sign Giacomo Raspadori, citing Newcastle''s failure with an offer in April.
Newcastle received a 21 million offer from Sassuolo in April, according to sources.
David Moyes has made a personal offer for Eddie Howe, the Italian international, who has been described as a fantastic forward.
Calciomercato believes the Hammers have suffered the same fate as Newcastle, but their request has also been rejected by the Serie A side.
Juventus are also attempting to sign Raspadori as a replacement for Alvaro Morata, who is expected to return to Atletico Madrid once his loan expires.
AC Milan are hoping to sign the forward after concluding a deal with Divock Origi.
Given his efforts last season, Calciomercato believes Sassuolo desire 30 million (26 million) for their No.18.
Raspadori scored ten goals in 38 appearances, while also six assists.
While the Premier League leaders are in a better financial position to meet the asking price of Sassuolos, it will be difficult to fend off two European teams in Juventus and AC Milan.
Weak players in Italy would not take a trip to one of those clubs, with only Inter having as much power as Juventus and AC Milan.
Raspadori might want something different with a move to the Premier League, in which case we believe West Ham would be the preferred player for his signature with Europa League football on offer.
Newcastle have enough money to knock away their competition, so it is possible that any action can take place in this four-way transfer battle.
Be sure to keep an eye on this saga, as Newcastle and West Ham may soon improve their offerings.
