Sources close to West Ham say they have put in a bid for a winger and are patiently waiting for an answer after the player returns from a holiday in Dubai.

The player in question could well be Marseille winger Georges-Kévin N’Koudou linked by the Guardian in a report this morning.

Manchester United, Liverpool and West Ham are all said  to have scouted the French under 21 International all season, with representatives  from all three clubs present at last month’s French Cup final when Marseille were beaten by Paris Saint-Germain at the Stade de France. West Ham are understood to have made offer around £10m for the 21-year-old, although it is likely that the French club’s asking price may be significantly higher.

N’Koudou moved to the Stade Vélodrome last summer from Nantes for £1m and scored 11 goals in all competitions in his debut season for Marseille.

  1. Looks pretty good, if he can raise his game like our other signing from them all the better.
