West Ham are interested in Bordeaux striker Josh Maja.

The 21-year-old, who made a name for himself at Sunderland, is also of interest to Rangers as a potential replacement for Alfredo Morelos.

Maja is not pushing for a move, having only joined the Ligue 1 club in January 2019, but the French club's finances have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and they could sell to raise funds.
