West Ham, Leicester chasing Ostersunds striker Saman Ghoddos

Ostersunds striker Saman Ghoddos is on the radar of West Ham and Leicester City.

The Sun says Ghoddos has attracted a wide range of interest after impressing against Arsenal in the Europa League.

West Ham, Southampton, Leicester City, West Brom and Brighton have sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old in action.

Arsenal narrowly beat the Swedish giants in the last 32 tie, but the Iranian striker stole the show and is now a top target for several clubs, according to ESPN.

After the first leg at the Jamtkraft Arena, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was quick to praise his performance.

He said: "Technically and tactically, I was impressed by him."

The Swedish-born star then set up two goals in the second leg as Ostersunds thumped Arsenal 2-1.
