The Swedish superstar has been linked with The Hammers this week.
It seemed like fantasy but it was then reported by The Sun that West Ham were ready to make a move for the player - with Andy Carroll potentially making way to find the funds for the player.
Ibrahimovic is out of contract at the end of this season and is expected to move on from French football after dominating Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain since moving to France.
The report claims that West Ham are hopeful that his apparent desire to move to the Premier League and their switch to the Olympic Stadium might just convince the superstar to make a move to London.
The move would go down as one of the most sensational in the club's history - but they have previous. Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano arrived at the club out of the blue and if they are serious then who knows, maybe West Ham could lure Zlatan to England?
Here is how fans reacted to the news on Twitter...
I cannot even with these Zlatan rumours. Something just absolutely outlandish about that concept. #whufc— Tom Woods (@woodstome) February 25, 2016
