West Ham United are involved in a race with four other Premier League clubs for the Turkish international striker Burak Yilmaz.

SkySports has confirmed that the Hammers are after the 30-year-old and that they are not the only English club interested in his services.

The report claims that the Hammers have made a bid that will see the east London based side pay €6 million upfront and a further €1 million instalment if the club ensure Europa League football.

Yılmaz has been one of the most prolific strikers in the league over recent years and has scored 81 times in 140 games for the Lions.

The 30-year-old striker also has won the league title twice and has years of Champions League experience.
