Hammers boss David Moyes spoke to reporters during his pre-match press conference before his side's clash with Bournemouth yesterday, and refused to rule out a move for Sevilla ace Steven N'Zonzi, as quoted by the Guardian.

The midfield destroyer could be available in January, according to Calcio Mercato, with the Italian media outlet reporting that he has a €40 million (£35.2 million) release clause inserted into his current contract with the La Liga side.

N'Zonzi has really impressed since joining Sevilla from Stoke City in the summer of 2015, for a fee believed to be in the region of £7 million, and has gone on to establish himself as one of the continent's best ball-winning midfielders.

West Ham have been linked with a move for the Frenchman, and David Moyes refused to rule out bringing him to the London Stadium in January when speaking to reporters, as quoted by the Guardian:

“I think he’s somebody who would be of interest to us if he came on the market. I wouldn’t say that about others but he’s not playing for some reason at Sevilla, albeit the manager’s gone, so maybe that changes the situation there.”

The east London outfit currently sit precariously in 17th position in the Premier League table, and Moyes will undoubtedly have to strengthen next month, if he is to guide his side away from trouble.

And there would be no better way to start than by bringing N'Zonzi to the London Stadium in January.
