West Ham United are keen on the signing of Copenhagen striker Jonas Wind as a replacement for Sebastian Haller, according to The Telegraph.
The Hammers are in the market for more firepower, with Haller completing a switch to Ajax earlier this month.
Wind is currently on seven goals in all competitions this season and at 21 would be a signing with bags of potential.
The report does suggest, however, that a move for the Danish player is unlikely this month.
David Moyes is likely to spend some money to sign a striker to replace Haller and the tried and tested option might be preferred.
In 67 appearances for Copenhagen, Wind has scored 25 goals and registered 12 assists.
He hasn’t been in the squad for the last four games, although he remains a big player in Jess Thorup’s team.
West Ham beat Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup this weekend to set up a fifth-round clash against Manchester United.
Moyes will now hope to add to his squad before the deadline which is creeping ever-closer.
Wind, although unlikely this window, would probably relish the chance to prove himself in the Premier League.

For too long West Ham have added players with no real strategy in mind – but Wind would provide a step in the right direction.
It would showcase that the Hammers are learning some lessons in the market and would indicate a plan for the future.
At 21, Wind has potential in bucket-loads and he has the attributes to star in the Premier League.
Moyes is getting things right at the London Stadium and it’ll be interesting to see if he does pounce for the striker in the summer.
