Hammers ‘close’ to Cornet West Ham have emerged as the favourites to sign Maxwel Cornet, according to The Guardian. ChronicleLive understood the Burnley winger had been offered to Newcastle last month following their relegation to the Championship. Cornet has a £17.5million release clause in his contract and it is no secret Eddie Howe is aiming to strengthen his frontline.

. The Everton striker has been persistently linked with Newcastle since the end of last season. A hefty £60million transfer fee was mooted and, since then, talk of a move has cooled.

Toon hunting 6ft 6in striker Sky Sports’ chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol namechecked Newcastle alongside seven other top-flight clubs in the race to sign Strasbourg striker Ludovic Ajorque. At 6ft 6in, the Frenchman certainly has the physical attributes to compete in the Premier League. Solhekol said: "A player who we could be hearing a lot more from in the next couple of weeks played against Liverpool for Strasbourg at the weekend. "He's a striker called Ludovic Ajorque, a 6ft 6in striker with a very good scoring record for them, is available for £18m. I'm told the clubs that watched him yesterday were Wolves, Everton, Leicester, West Ham, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Newcastle. He's someone we might be hearing a lot more from."
