West Ham ready to challenge Tottenham’s move for Serie A star

Ruslan Malinovskyi is keen for a new challenge and Premier League clubs West Ham and Tottenham are both serious about the Atalanta forward, reports detail, as relays the Football Italia.

The 29-year-old Ukrainian did not have an easy 2022, deeply affected by the Russian invasion of his homeland, and he seemed set to depart in the summer, before ultimately fixing his relationship with coach Gian Piero Gasperini. Malinovskyi has played well this season, scoring one goal and providing two assist across 14 Serie A appearances, and his future in Bergamo is again in doubt.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, West Ham have made a serious approach for Malinovskyi, weighing up their options before possibly sending in an offer to Atalanta. Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are also interested but would only offer a loan deal, something la Dea aren’t keen on.

Olympique Marseille are also fans of the 29-year-old but face a similar problem to Spurs, leaving the Hammers in a strong position.
