White Hart Lane and Anfield clubs hope to take advantage of Upton Park relegation doom.
Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are chasing more than the final Europa League place as they prepare to battle for West Ham United goalkeeper Robert Green.
Managers Harry Redknapp and Kenny Dalglish are keeping tabs on the 31-year-old who is a free agent in the summer and can leave Upton Park for free.
Spurs’ boss Redknapp has finally run out of patience with keeper Heurelho Gomes after a string of high-profile blunders, most recently in the London derby with Chelsea.
Dalglish is aware of the interest from other clubs being shown in shot-stopper Pepe Reina as the Spaniard is desperate to play in the Champions League.
The Anfield manager does not want to lose his number one but knows any £20million bid from a Champions League club will trigger a release cause in his contract.
Reports suggest Dalglish is also after Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris but Green is seen as a cheaper alternative.
Both clubs are hopeful of taking advantage of West Ham’s relegation problems to sign the England international.
Green, who made a huge gaffe in last summer’s World Cup costing England a vital win over the USA, would jump at the chance to play for a high-profile club.
