Report: West Ham United tracking Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United are apparently keen to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window.

According to the Guardian, West Ham United are scouting Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.

The Hammers had scouts at Marseille’s most recent match, with the 20-year-old believed to be the player they had their eyes on.

N’Koudou has been one of the most dangerous attacking threats in France this season, despite playing for a Marseille side who have struggled to live up to expectations.

The youngster has scored eight times and claimed four assists in just 21 appearances in domestic and European competition.

West Ham already have some excellent wing options at the club, but Slaven Bilic is keen to strengthen his squad even further.

The Hammers realise that they have an opportunity to make it into Europe this season, and are prepared to invest to try to put themselves in the best position to establish a place in the top six.

West Ham have already signed Sam Byram from Leeds United, while Sky Sports suggests that they want Emmanuel Emenike.
