Only true Hammers get 10/10 in this ultimate summer transfer quiz...how much did West Ham pay to sign Morgan Amalfitano on deadline day in 2014?

However, while the Hammers wanted to sign him permanently, the England international looks set to stay at Old Trafford instead (The Manchester Evening News).

The Latest: Irons eye Bamba

Now, as per this latest report, David Moyes is now eager to sign Bamba instead.

He is said to be available for a fee of £25m this summer, but the London outfit face competition from Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen for his services.

The Verdict: Top talent

Since making the move to Les Dogues from Saint-Etienne, £22.5m-valued Bamba has done extremely well for the reining Ligue 1 champions (Transfermarkt).

In 130 matches in all competitions, he has picked up 22 goals and 24 assists (Transfermarkt). Last term, he found the back of the net seven times and provided 11 assists as Lille captured the title.
