West Ham have joined a growing list of clubs in the chase for highly-rated Feyenoord forward Santiago Gimenez.

The Mirror reports that the Hammers have joined the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal, Newcastle, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Napoli, Lazio, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in showing an interest in the 22-year-old Mexico forward.

The Hammers held talks over a move for Gimenez in August, but the player decided to extend his contract at Feyenoord until 2027 instead.

Feyenoord have no interest in selling their highly-rated forward in January, even though his value has sky-rocketed upwards of £40million.

Gimenez netted a brace on his Champions League debut against Lazio on Wednesday night.
