West Ham United have offer £15 million for Burnley centre forward Andre Gray, but the Turf Moor outfit are likely to reject the bid, according to The Mirror.

The Hammers are in the market for attacking reinforcements in January, with Andre Ayew away at the African Cup of Nations and Simone Zaza set to be offloaded.

Slaven Bilic’s men have been linked with a host of different number nines, but talk of a deal for Gray has only emerged on Sunday.

The 25-year-old has looked impressive in his first season in the Premier League, scoring five goals for the Clarets in 13 starts.

The report suggests that Bilic has been impressed with Gray’s pace and predatory nature, but that the offer will be rejected by Sean Dyche’s men, who see the attacker as critical in their attempts to avoid relegation.

Current Hammers striker Andy Carroll reminded the world of his abilities with a spectacular goal on Saturday as the London side beat Crystal Palace 3-0 in the Premier League.
