Skysports.com understands West Ham have launched a £4million bid for highly-rated West Brom ace Graham Dorrans.
Hammers co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are keen to reshape the Upton Park squad after admitting every player bar Scott Parker was up for sale and Baggies star Dorrans is at the top of their shopping list.
Dorrans has been a revelation for West Brom this season, scoring 18 goals from midfield and he has been the driving force behind the club's successful promotion to the Premier League.
The Scotland international was rewarded for his sparkling performances this season by being named in the PFA Championship team of the year.
West Brom are keen to keep hold of the former Livingston man as they prepare for life back in the top flight, but could struggle to reject a big offer for the playmaker with not just West Ham chasing his services.
Dorrans' agent, Willie McKay, admits it would not come as a shock if West Ham were chasing the 22-year-old.
"I would not be surprised if West Ham have made a bid for Graham as he has been the best player in the Championship," McKay told skysports.com.
"Graham has had a fantastic season for West Brom and I know a lot of clubs are interested in him.
"As far as I know Graham is very happy at West Brom, but every player wants to play at the highest level they can.
"It is up to the two clubs and if a deal is agreed Graham will have a decision to make."
