At 25 years of age, Streli Mamba is probably having the best period of his career.

Signing for Paderborn in the summer, the striker has four goals and an assist in eight Bundesliga matches so far.

He helped his club to a 3-3 draw with Borussia Dortmund at the weekend, and Calciomercato report West Ham are keen on him.

Mamba’s performance was so good that he’s been named the best Bundesliga player of the latest round of matches, and that’s for a footballer who cost around €500k in the summer.

Atalanta had an official at the match, and the Serie A side are looking at Mamba as a possible back-up for Duvan Zapata. They’ll face strong competition, with it being claimed there’s interest from England, the Netherlands, and other clubs in the Bundesliga.

West Ham are described as being ‘in the front row’ for the forward, although there’s no further information on what the Hammers have done, or may plan to do, about the potential signing.
