West Ham United are reportedly considering a change of manager, and Hull City boss Marco Silva may be a great option to target.

According to the Daily Mail, Slaven Bilic's future as West Ham boss is up in the air after plans to discuss a new contract with the Croatian were put on hold due to the Hammers' underwhelming campaign.

Bilic arguably showed enough during his first season at the London Stadium to earn more time in the dugout, especially given the circumstances that he has had to contend with this term - the recruitment in the summer was woeful and the club's best player left the London Stadium in January.

However, if the Hammers hierarchy do decide to be ruthless and part company with Bilic, then perhaps Saturday's opposing manager would be a great candidate to consider for the role.

Marco Silva has provided Hull with a chance of staying in the Premier League that it did not appear that they would have under his predecessor Mike Phelan.

The Tigers are just one place and three points off safety, which is a tremendous achievement given that several of their relegation rivals have enjoyed upturns in form and the club sold two of their best players during the January transfer window to deplete their already thin squad further.

Another report from the Daily Mail has suggested that Silva is likely to leave the KCOM Stadium this summer if Hull do go down, and given how he has managed to get the best out of his squad, he may be worth looking at if West Ham decide to make a change.
