According to Sky Italia West Ham have made a €18m (£12.75m) offer for Monoco defender Aymen Abdennour.
David Amoyal who writes for gianlucadimarzio.com adds “When Monaco played at Juve Stadium in Champions League, Abdennour was the player that impressed Serie A scouts the most. West Ham close to getting him”
His agent has previously confirmed numerous clubs that have expressed interest in the player’s services this summer.
The agent believes Monaco are unlikely to come in the way of Abdennour’s departure, with Liverpool, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Barcelona and West Ham said to be interested in signing him.
The Tunisia defender has been in brilliant form this season, notably during their game against Arsenal at in the Champions League, restricting the Gunners to a solitary goal, which helped them secure qualification into the quarter-final stage of Europe’s top tournament.
