WEST Ham have joined the race to sign Swansea City target Romelu Lukaku, and believe the fact they are London-based may prove decisive.

Swansea are hoping the 20-year-old Chelsea striker will agree a season-long loan switch to the Liberty.

The powerful Belgian excelled during a similar spell at West Brom last term, scoring 17 goals in 35 Premier League appearances.

That has attracted the interest of a host of Premier League clubs.

"Lukaku has been amazing for West Brom this season and I'd hope that he would prefer to live in London."

    Unfortunately it seems that he wants to play in Dortmund and CL. But he would be a perfect match for us.
