According to the Express, one player who is attracting attention from West Ham is Chelsea ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek, although Maurizio Sarri is not prepared to sanction the young Englishman's exit from Stamford Bridge.
The Hammers cannot give up on the chance of signing the 22-year-old, however, as he is exactly the type of player they need in the middle of the park.
West Ham have struggled in midfield this season, with ageing legs and underperforming stars proving to be detrimental to their hopes of forcing their way into contention for the Europa League spots.
Mark Noble is not the player he was, Jack Wilshere is unreliable form a fitness perspective, and the jury is still out on whether Carlos Sanchez is good enough for the Premier League.
Loftus-Cheek possesses all of the attributes that West Ham currently desperately lack in the middle of the park, what with his energy and drive from deep.
Although Sarri seems determined to keep hold of the England international, the Hammers have to keep trying to snare him away from Stamford Bridge - it could be the signing that makes all the difference for them this season.
