According to reports in the Swedish media, West Ham United this week sent a scout to the game between Arsenal and Östersund to get a lowdown on Saman Ghoddos.

The OFK forward has impressed this season, and last summer he was linked with a move to Queens Park Rangers.

Fotboll Direkt report West Ham were attendance at the Emirates on Thursday night, with the objective to watch Ghoddos. It was well documented in the last window West Ham were looking to bolster their attacking options, after Andre Ayew and Diafra Sakho exited the club.

West Ham could face competition from other Premier League sides for the Iran international, but it was QPR who were first showing interest in the 24 year old.

Last summer we covered reports from Sweden that QPR tabled a bid for Ghoddos, but this was rejected by OFK.

Again this week QPR were linked with the attacker, but if they have plans to go back in for the player  they will face more competition, and they would have to bid more than the £1.9m they offered OFK seven months ago.
