According to talkSPORT, the Hammers are leading the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Alex Song.
The Cameroonian midfielder has been told that he has no future at the Camp Nou and has been allowed to find a club on loan.
Liverpool had been linked with a move for the former Arsenal midfielder despite the Merseyside club denying the rumours.
However, Spanish expert Graham Hunter has told the radio station that he believes it’s the East London outfit that are in pole position.
He said: “West Ham are in this and are maybe ahead of the pack.”
“I don’t think Barcelona are asking a very big price for him at all. They want him off the books.
“He will be out of Barcelona by the team the window closes, possibly to West Ham, maybe Liverpool. Let’s see.”
