West Ham United are believed to be interested in signing a midfielder in January, with Manuel Pellegrini looking to strengthen his squad.

West Ham United fans are keen to see Manuel Pellegrini move for Phillip Billing from Huddersfield Town.

West Ham are thought to be on the look out for a central midfielder with Jonjo Shelvey and Tom Cairney both linked in recent times.

But West Ham fans believe that Billing could be a better option, and are keen to see him at the London Stadium.

Billing has impressed in a Huddersfield shirt this season, and looks to have a very bright future.

If West Ham were to make a bid it seems unlikely that he would come cheap.

Huddersfield are locked in a relegation battle, and are unlikely to want to sell their best players, while in such a precarious position.

West Ham already have the likes of Declan Rice, Pedro Obiang, Jack Wilshere and Mark Noble who can play in central midfield, but Billing would add more power and presence to their ranks.

The Hammers are yet to make an addition in January, but are thought to have money to spend.
