West Ham and Cardiff City are battling it out for former Barcelona and Real Madrid striker Javier Saviola.

Saviola, 31, is currently a free-agent after being released by Malaga.

He has plenty of experience after winning 40 capps for Argentina and his career high would be spending seven years at Barcelona, scoring 49 goals in 123 apperances.

It is believed that Saviola would go straight into the first team at both teams after the new signings of Andy Carroll and Andreas Cornelius for West Ham and Cardiff respectively.

It would be the first time Saviola has played in England, having featured for teams in Argentina, France, Portugal, and Spain.
