West Ham United are reportedly interested in Gaziantepspor youngster Orkan Cinar.

West Ham United are interested in signing Orkan Cinar in the summer transfer window, according to Turkish website Fotomac.

Cinar is at Turkish club Gaziantepspor at the moment, and the Hammers are reported to be monitoring him.

It has been claimed that West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has received positive reports from scouts watching the 20-year-old right winger, who can play as a left winger or as a left-back.

Cinar is a talented young player and he would be a decent signing for the Hammers, but he would be one for the future.

West Ham do have a strong squad, but for the London outfit to challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League next season, they need to reinforce.

The Turkey Under-21 international is unlikely to have an immediate impact at the Olympic Stadium next season, and Bilic would probably gradually bring him into the fold.

The Hammers are having a fabulous season and still have an outside chance of clinching a Champions League place.

West Ham will return to action next weekend when they take on West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns in the Premier League.
