WEST HAM and Borussia Dortmund are both reportedly keen on signing Spartak Moscow star Jordan Larsson – son of Celtic legend Henrik.
The striker, 23, has been in excellent form in the Russian Premier League this season and has attracted attention from across Europe.
West Ham are in desperate need of striker with injury prone Michail Antonio their only recognised front man on the books.

Larsson is on the radar of both teams, according to Goal.
Spartak signed Larsson from Swedish side Norrkoping for £3.5million in August 2019.
The Sweden international has bagged 12 goals for Spartak in 23 Russian Prem matches so far this season.
He was also voted the club's player of the month for March
Jordan grew up in football circles with dad Henrik playing for Celtic, Barcelona and Manchester United since he was born in 1997.
And in December, he revealed he would love to follow in his dad's footsteps and play for the Bhoys in Green.

He said: "For me Celtic will always have a special place in my heart.
"Not that I’ve played there in that sense, but it was the first place where I saw football as a young kid going with my mother to see games when my father was playing.
"That’s where I have the biggest memories in my head.
"'You’ll Never Walk Alone’ you have all the scarves before the games and everything so of course it will always have a special place in my heart.
"But at the same time since my father is who he is at the club I think for me personally if I would ever have the chance to play there then I would like to establish myself even more, make my own name before I would play there if that chance would ever come up but of course it’s tempting.
"Not that they are interested in that sense but If I think about it to be able to play there would be a dream in that sense.
"For me my whole life has been about proving I’m a good player, that I’m my own person you know."
