The Tunisian international has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer, with Italy and England the two countries named as his most likely destinations.
As reported in the Daily Mail, Premier League quartet Liverpool, Newcastle United, Arsenal and West Ham United have been credited with holding an interest, with the latter certainly willing to spend this summer.
The Hammers have brought in a host of top players, including another centre-back in Angelo Ogbonna, who joined from Juventus, yet the club seemingly aren’t ready to stop yet.
What are the Premier League quartet set to miss out on?
The 25-year-old is naturally centre-back but can fill in out on the left. He is tall, strong and excellent in possession, instigating attacks from the back with his wide range of passing.
Abdennour would have been a fine addition for a number of Premier League sides, not least Steve McClaren’s Newcastle United side, who are short at the back heading into the new campaign.
