West Ham and West Brom look set to battle it out for the signature of Anderlecht forward Lukasz Teodorczyk this summer, according to RTBF in Belgium (via Sport Witness).

The Poland international has been in stunning form for the Belgian giants this season, scoring 20 goals in 34 First Division matches, as well as seven in their Europa League campaign which came to an end at the hands of Manchester United in the quarter-finals last week.

The 25-year-old made the move to Anderlecht last summer after a decent two-year spell at Ukrainian outfit Dynamo Kiev, and he may well be on the move again this summer after a wonderful campaign in the Belgium capital.

And two sides thought to be monitoring Teodorczyk’s situation are Slaven Bilic’s West Ham and Tony Pulis’ West Brom, who reportedly may have to fork out €15 million to lure the 28-goal striker away from Anderlecht this summer.

Bilic’s Hammers has seriously struggled in the striking department this term, with Andy Carroll, who has appeared just 18 times in the Premier League this season, their top-scoring forward with only seven, while the quartet of Andre Ayew, Diafra Sakho, Ashley Fletcher, and Jonathan Calleri have added just eight further goals between them.

And the same can be said of West Brom, with Pulis’ men having only netted 39 times in the Premier League this term, the joint-least of any side in the top half, and only nine of those have come from forwards Salomon Rondon and Hal Robson-Kanu – the former hasn’t netted in the league in 2017.

Clearly, both sides will need to strengthen that department this summer to improve next season, and with Teodorczyk performing well and netting goals regularly for Anderlecht, he could be the answer to both teams’ attacking woes.
