Paper round-up: Hammers linked with Grosicki

West Ham want to sign Hull’s Kamil Grosicki, the Daily Mirror say.

Newcastle and Watford are also said to be interested in the Poland international following Hull’s relegation from the Premier League.

New Watford boss Marco Silva, who signed the 28-year-old for Hull, is reportedly keen to pay the Tigers’ asking price – said to be £7.7m – in order to be reunited with him.

The Mirror say West Ham boss Slaven Bilic is also keen on Grosicki.

Meanwhile, Tammy Abraham will hear from Brighton before deciding where he will go on loan next season, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The 19-year-old, who scored 23 Championship goals while on loan at Bristol City last season, is wanted by Newcastle.

The Telegraph say Abraham has yet to make a final decision on which of the promoted clubs he will join.

Chelsea have yet again been linked with Celtic’s former Fulham forward Moussa Dembele, with the Daily Record claiming the Blues and Borussia Dortmund are set to make moves for him.

The Daily Mail say Chelsea are considering signing Dani Alves after being offered the veteran Juventus right-back.

The Sun have picked up on reports in Spain claiming that Atletico Madrid are close to agreeing a deal to re-sign Diego Costa – in January.

Spanish newspaper AS have claimed that Atletico are determined to take Costa back to his former club but will not do so this summer.

And Brighton want Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald, The Sun claim.

The Sun say a move to the promoted Seagulls would appeal to the 28-year-old, who has three years remaining on his contract at Craven Cottage.

It is claimed that Brighton are ready to table a £2m bid for him and that he is also wanted by Glasgow Rangers.

McDonald would also see a transfer to Ibrox as a good move, The Sun say, because he wants to get back into the Scotland squad.
