The Toffees are looking to bolster their attack in the summer, with Joshua King expected to leave Goodison Park when his short-term contract with the club runs out at the end of the season.
West Ham’s strike force has struggled due to niggling injuries to Michail Antonio this term and David Moyes is keen to add more options to his attack ahead of next season.
The Premier League duo are in need of a new striker in the summer and have identified RB Leipzig’s 25-year-old centre-forward Hwang as an ideal candidate.
According to German broadcaster Sport1, Everton and West Ham are plotting a move for the South Korea international as the summer transfer window approaches.
Hwang, who joined RB Leipzig from their Austrian sister club Red Bull Salzburg last summer, could be available for €15m.
Everton and West Ham were interested in acquiring the striker’s services in the winter, but saw RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann block any move for the player.
As Nagelsmann is heading to Bayern Munich at the end of the season, the Bundesliga club are set to make Hwang available in the transfer market.
