West Ham have joined the race for Slovakia star Ondrej Duda, according to reports.
The Daily Star claim that the 21-year-old could leave Legia Warsaw this summer if the club’s £5million valuation is met.
The report says that three Premier League teams are eyeing a move for the youngster as both Manchester united and Arsenal are believed to be weighing up a move.
Duda is a versatile, forward-thinking player who can operate as both a number 10 or number 8, in behind the strikers.
The striker played 43 times this season in all competitions and scored five goals and provided nine assists as he helped guide Polish side Warsaw to the Ekstraklasa title.

The starlet, who has three years to run on his current contract in Poland, enjoyed a thrilling European Championship campaign with his country and scored a goal against Wales in his sides 2-1 defeat in June.
If the move goes through, Slaven Bilic will be hoping the signing can help the Hammers improve upon their seventh placed finish in the Premier League next season as the club prepares to fight on all fronts after qualifying for Europa League football.
