The Hammers have been in inconsistent form throughout the season.

Reports in France are suggesting that West Ham United are interested in signing Liverpool outcast Mamadou Sakho.

Le 10 Sport is claiming that West Ham have already been in contact with Liverpool about the potential signature of the Frenchman in the winter.

It comes after West Brom ended their interest in the player due to his asking price and West Ham are now in the running to snap him up.
