Diafra Sakho - out?
Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has been eyeing up some prospects from his previous club West Ham and has conjured up a possible reunion with striker Diafra Sakho, rated at £10million.
The Senegal international, 26, is also said to be in the sights of West Brom with Irons co-chairman David Sullivan ready to sanction a move to free up funds for another striker.
Carlos Bacca - in?
That striker could be AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca, if the east London outfit can orchestrate an audacious manoeuvre under the noses of Chelsa and Liverpool who are eyeing the former Sevilla star.
West Ham are reportedly prepared a £16million bid who has also attracted the interests of Manchester Utd and Arsenal. The 29-year-old scored 18 goals in 38 Serie A appearances. He has indicated he’s ready for a move and Liverpool were thought to be favourites.
Dimitri Payet - staying
Dimitri Payet has given West Ham fans an off-season gift with a signal of commitment to the club with whom he has made his name. Speculation has been rife that the Frenchman could become the target of a big money offer from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.
But the 29-year-old, with the French national team ahead of Euro 2016, says it is “very likely” he will be playing at the Olympic Stadium.
He told the French press: “Journalists have placed me everywhere. But I currently have no contact [from other clubs] and I signed a very long contract with West Ham. It is very likely that I’ll still be here next season.
“It’s true that the last two years have been the best, but I still hope to progress. You can always learn and I work hard to be able to raise my level.”
Reece Oxford - Chelsea interest
The widely-predicted summer of love for Reece Oxford has begun in earnest with Jose Mourinho looking to take the 17-year-old defender to Old Trafford.
West Ham have no plans to sell the Young Hammer of the Year although it is understood that if his suitors are happy to pay a sizeable eight-figure fee they might be prepared to listen.
