West Ham have spoken to Sassuolo over both Giacomo Raspadori and Gianluca Scamacca, 90min understands, as the club continue to search for reinforcements up front.
David Moyes completed his first signing of the summer window on Monday, bringing in Rennes defender Nayef Aguerd in a move worth around £30m plus add-ons.
But the signings are unlikely to stop there for the Hammers, with Moyes keen to bolster his squad with a number of fresh faces ahead of the 2022/23 campaign - one that will see the club compete in the Europa Conference League after last season's incredible run to the Europa League semi-finals.
West Ham are in the market for a number of positions - goalkeeper, left-back and central midfield among others - but strengthening Moyes' frontline is a priority given the workload on Michail Antonio's shoulders. The Jamaican remains the club's only recognised striker - a burden he has carried since Sebastien Haller's departure to Ajax back in January 2021.
90min understands West Ham are keen on wide forwards, namely Raphinha, Keane Lewis-Potter and Jesse Lingard, but contact has been made over central striking options.
