Everton and West Ham will do battle to sign Burnley forward Maxwel Cornet. The talented player, who had a successful spell in the Premier League with the Clarets, is ready to move elsewhere in order to return to England's top flight. Everton have already tabled a £15 million offer for Cornet, and the Hammers have now bid a similar fee for the player.

Moyes is looking to sign a left-sided forward and failed to sign Filip Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt and has now turned his attentions to Cornet. 

The 25-year-old has two years remaining on his Burnley contract and is earning a reported £80,000 a week at Turf Moor. 

Cornet scored an impressive 9 goals in the Premier League last year, and showed flashes of brilliance during his spell with Burnley.

West Ham have already signed Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo, who is expected to compete with Antonio as a forward, but the Hammers are lacking some attacking power on the flanks, as Jarrod Bowen seems to be the first choice from the right side of the field.
