West Ham and Arsenal have both reportedly registered their interest in signing Dinamo Zagreb winger Mislav Orsic this summer.
The 28-year-old is best known for the hat-trick he scored against archrivals Tottenham earlier this month, which knocked the London club out of the Europa League.
Orsic’s heroics in the win over Spurs have undoubtedly coloured the thinking of many supporters on Twitter, who would like to see him move to the Hammers at the end of the season:
haha love this, would be a good signing.

He's being signed as a mascot purely for the spurs games.

Decent backup probably so if he's going cheap why not?

Whether there is any truth to this story, we shall have to wait and see. Orsic has been in superb form this season, but whether that will be enough for West Ham to make a formal offer, it isn’t known.
Manager David Moyes does already have a fair number of wide options in his squad but adding Orsic to the mix, who is a prolific scorer, could give the Irons another major goal threat.
