West Ham United have enjoyed a hugely successful summer and will be looking forward to the upcoming Premier League campaign.
The Hammers have already made a number of seriously ambitious signings during the transfer window with the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere and Felipe Anderson all joining the London Stadium outfit already.
Manuel Pellegrini has also added the likes of Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks to his backline and is thought to remain in the market for another defender, with reports in France suggesting he could be about to spend big once again.
The Brazilian has impressed for the Ligue One outfit in his debut year and the French side are cautious about losing another one of their key players, however, with a double-your-money offer on the table, they may be powerless to convince him to stay.
West Ham are in the market to find another centre-back and believe the 31-year-old to be the man that could fill the void they have. A deal could be likely if they are prepared to offer him double his salary, as the player will know it could be one of the last chances he has to earn that sort of money, whilst also having the chance to play in the Premier League.
West Ham fans – thoughts?
