WEST HAM are keeping tabs on Atalanta ace Joakim Maehle, reports suggest.
That is according to Tutto Atalanta, who report that the Hammers are the only club that has shown serious interest in Maehle, whose contract runs out in 2025.
However, the Serie A outfit will demand a fee in the region of €18-20million (£15-17m) and won't sell for anything less.
This comes after the Denmark international's impressive Euro 2020 outing as he helped his nation reach last summer's semi-finals.
The 25-year-old played every single minute this past tournament and made a great impression all around Europe.
Maehle joined Atalanta from Genk last year and has since amassed a total of three goals and four assists in 60 appearances.
