WEST HAM and Newcastle lead a four-way Premier League race to sign Marseille star Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Watford and West Brom are also keen on the Cameroon midfielder, who shone at the Confederations Cup last summer.

Zambo Anguissa, 22, has had an outstanding season to help his underachieving club to third in Ligue 1.

He has made 37 appearances as Rudi Garcia's men have moved to within a point of second-placed Monaco, and given themselves a great chance of Champions League football next season.

Struggling West Brom are said to have had a £13million offer rejected for the powerful ball-winner during the past year.

And reports in Marseilles claim the Baggies have continued to monitor his progress - while the Hammers, Toon and Hornets have joined the chase for his signature by watching him regularly.
