West Ham, Brighton eyeing Clermont Foot striker Mohamed Bayo

West Ham and Brighton are eyeing Clermont Foot striker Mohamed Bayo.

The Sun says the Seagulls watched the powerful hitman, 23, score again last week and have been in contact with the Ligue 1 club.

Clermont want around £10million for the forward, who is also on West Ham's radar and has attracted a bid from Bordeaux.

Bayo will play in the African Cup of Nations in January but Brighton see him as a long-term project and are now waiting for the bidding to start.

It is, however, unclear whether Bayo will remain a target should the newly richest club in world football, Newcastle, come calling for boss Graham Potter.

The Englishman is high on the list of potential managers to replace unpopular boss Steve Bruce.

Newcastle, backed by Saudi's Public Investment Fund – worth around £320billion - are impressed by the job Potter has done.
