West Ham are ODDS-ON favourites to sign Josh King as they lead Everton in transfer race

JOSH KING is one of the most wanted stars in the Championship and West Ham are ODDS-ON favourites to sign the Bournemouth ace.

The Irons are just 4/6 to sign King as they lead a handful of Premier League clubs in race to sign the forward.

King is in the last year of his contract on the south coast and an exit during this window seems incredibly likely.

SunSport have reported West Ham are plotting a move for the forward in a deal worth in the region of £12million.

But they could face competition from Everton who are second favourites at 2/1 to sign the Norway international.

King would add depth to Carlo Ancelotti's in-form side and he may be interested in a move to the table toppers rather than West Ham.

King has only made one appearance for the Cherries this season, coming on as a second-half sub in last month’s 1-0 win over Norwich.

The forward has netted 48 Premier League goals for Bournemouth since joining for free from Blackburn five years ago.

Ladbrokes odds

4/6 West Ham

2/1  Everton

5/1  Fulham

5/1  Tottenham

9/1  Aston Villa

9/1  Wolves

Fulham are outsiders are along with Tottenham, Aston Villa and Wolves to make a move for the forward.

The Cherries are expected to try and shift King as they fear they may lose him on a free, similar to Ryan Fraser.

Fraser allowed his contract to run down, meaning he left for Newcastle on a free transfer.
