West Ham lodge £10m bid for Croatia starlet Ante Coric

West Ham United have reportedly made an offer for Dinamo Zagreb's Ante Coric.

According to The Sun, the Hammers have offered £10million for the 19-year-old attacking midfielder.

Coric is one of the brightest talents to emerge out of Croatia in recent times and is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in European football right now.

The teenager is in Ante Cacic's squad for Euro2016 and is destined for a move to a bigger club after breaking through and impressing greatly at Dinamo.

Croatian daily Vecernji List is reporting that Slaven Bilic is determined to lure his fellow countryman to East London and is hoping to steal a march on the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Benfica and Inter Milan who have all been credited with an interest in Coric.
